Research work at the GFZ is carried out in sections, which are grouped into five departments and the Research Institute for Sustainability RIFS in accordance with the research foci and fields of competence. The long-term research goals of the GFZ are implemented in the Helmholtz Association's topic-oriented programme research (PoF). Each programme contains several Research Topics. Research within the topics is carried out across sections and often also across Centres. The research in these budget-financed PoF activities is complemented by third-party funded projects.
