The Helmholtz Institute Erlangen-Nürnberg for Renewable Energy (HI ERN) celebrates topping-out ceremony
After eleven months of construction, the structure of the Helmholtz Institute Erlangen-Nürnberg for Renewable Energies (HI ERN) has been completed. To mark this, the topping-out ceremony will take place on 12th December 2018 at 2pm at the building site on the university campus of the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität, Cauerstraße 1, in 90158 Erlangen. Gerber Architekten has developed a compact and functional building which will be the new headquarters of the institute. It meets high user requirements and at the same time communicates the work of the institute to the public by its facade design – the variations of the panels are inspired by patterns from nanotechnology. In future, the HI ERN as part of the Forschungszentrum Jülich will focus on research into printable photovoltaics and innovative methods for the storage of chemical energy.
