Little table, spread yourself!

Have we overcome the meager culinary years in the Science and Technology Park Adlershof? New opportunities to eat and dine are mushrooming everywhere. Of course, Adlershof always offered ways to satisfy your hunger a few steps away from the office.

In the summer of 2015, however, many scientists and entrepreneurs of the Technology Park declared a state of lunch emergency, when the local companys’ cafeteria ABR (Adlershof Betriebsrestaurant) in the basement of Volmerstraße 2 went bankrupt and closed overnight and with it all its branches including “Steinkauz” (Volmerstraße 9), “Hummel” (Rudower Chaussee 29) and “Libelle” (Am Studio 16). The ABR used to give out around 1,000 meals every day. Those meals were suddenly no more. However, other Adlershof-based caterers quickly expanded their capacities and opened Esskultur Adlershof, Skykitchen and the esswirtschaft am Studio.

Caffè Kamee expanded in size and range and put three changing business lunches on the menue. Fans of Asian cuisine go to the Korean restaurant Mani Mogo, the Asia Sushi Bar and Azuma Asian Fine Kitchen. The newly built “Medienfenster” on Rudower Chaussee 5, which opened in October, now has a Greek restaurant, Eat Green and a bakery-cum-ice cream parlour. Growling stomachs in the new “Living on Campus” estate are taken care of by the Campus-Café and the bakery Steinecke.

More new office and commercial estates will open soon and make room for more places to eat. The café of the bakery Engelmann and the Van Tat-Asian-International Gourmet Restaurant have announced that they will open as soon as next year. Those looking for an authentic cafeteria experience go to the student cafeteria Oasis. The former cafeteria in Volmerstraße could not be replaced by a new catering company. The space will be transformed into an event location and co-working space.

I hope this issue will work up your appetite for Adlershof.

Laser diodes from Adlershof are mapping the Milky Way

Two laser diodes made by the Adlershof-based company eagleyard Photonics are being used on board at ESA’s billion-star surveyor Gaia, which was sent to space at the end of 2013. The Gaia space probe equipped with the largest digital camera ever built for space. It has a resolution of almost a billion pixels and is part of highly complex telescope system of the research probe. The all-sky survey contains highly detailed information on the position and brightness of stars and is the largest and most detailed map of our Milky Way to date. The two aforementioned laser diodes are responsible for the exact positioning of the two on-board telescopes, which are used for mapping the Milky Way and counting the stars.



“Forum Junge Spitzenforscher“

On 16th November 2016 (3pm, Erwin-Schrödinger-Zentrum), six young scientists from Berlin and Brandenburg will pitch their ideas for digitisation in the life sciences. A jury consisting of business experts will decide which ideas are particularly convincing and feasible from a business point of view. The competition is hosted by the Stiftung Industrieforschung, a foundation promoting industrial research among young people, and Humboldt-Innovation, the HU’s start-up agency. The three winners will receive 10,000 euros, the remaining participants 2,000 euros each.



Closing date for applications

The application period for the most widely known junior science competition “Jugend forscht” ends soon. Students, apprentices and university students above the 4th grade but below the age of 21 can apply until 30th November 2016 for researching, inventing, and experimenting in seven scientific-technical categories. The regional competition of “Jugend Forscht” in the south of Berlin will take place from 21st to 22nd February 2017 in Adlershof.
