DASHH is a newly established Helmholtz graduate school with several partners in Hamburg.

The Center for Data and Computing in Natural Science (CDCS) is being established in Hamburg-Bahrenfeld to bundle competences and to cover science from basic and structural research to systems biology - in cooperation with the Universität Hamburg, DESY and the TUHH. The CDCS initially consists of four application-focused, cross-disciplinary laboratories, which are supported by an 'Informatics Core Unit'.

The cross-disciplinary laboratories focus on the following areas: Computational Astro and Particle Physics - Computational Photon Science - Computational Systems Biology - Computational Controls of Accelerators. The overall aim is to significantly strengthen the conditions for excellent research in the field of computation.

DESY is already involved in the graduate school DASHH (Data Science in Hamburg – Helmholtz Graduate School for the Structure of Matter) for data science together with the Universität Hamburg and other partners.
