With more than 7000 scientists and employees, the "Forschungszentrum Jülich" (FZJ), is one of the largest research institutions in Europe.

After 18 months of development, the main portal fz-juelich.de was relaunched with Plone in April 2022, together with 11 institute websites, 80 institute department websites, and hundreds of other FZJ websites.

All FZJ websites use the modern Plone 6 stack that consists of a Plone backend, Plone REST API and the new ReactJS-based Volto frontend.
