German research centre GKSS, with sites in Geesthacht and Teltow, has changed its name to Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht Zentrum für Material und Küstenforschung GmbH (Centre for Materials and Coastal Research).

“With our new name, we are making it clear what we stand for,” stated scientific director, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Kaysser. “We have been well positioned in the field of material research and coastal research for several years.”
Around 800 employees work at locations in Geesthacht, near Hamburg, and Teltow, near Berlin.
