An important component for communication in the current period of program-oriented funding (PoF IV) of the Helmholtz Association is SynCom. SynCom is a platform for the synthesis and knowledge communication of the Helmholtz Research Field Earth and Environment with a focus on cross-topical integration of all participating centers in the research program Changing Earth – Sustaining our Future. SynCom brings together research results from different disciplines, builds bridges and provides in-depth and understandable knowledge for societal debates and political decisions. In this way, Helmholtz earth system research contributes to solving the major challenges of our time.

From workshops to evidence-based policy advice, SynCom creates tailored solutions for different stakeholders. SynCom connects decision makers from politics and industry with the Helmholtz-wide research community.

See the SynCom fact sheet (Deu / Eng) for more details (as of July 2023).
