An artist's rendering of the future Science City Bahrenfeld. Along with 2500 new appartments, the city of Hamburg plans a new science district around the DESY campus that will be home to new scientific institutes and facilities.

Common DASHH activities are centred at the research campus Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY), where several partner institutions are located. Individual projects, however, are carried out at all the partner institutions. The DESY campus is located in Hamburg Bahrenfeld and will evolve into a multi-institutional, vibrant urban district - the Science City Bahrenfeld.
