Berlin Adlershof - Facts and Figures
Berlin Adlershof is one of the most successful high-tech locations in Germany. Embedded in an overall urban development concept, this integrated Science, Business and Media location has been growing on an area of 4.2 km2 since 1991. At the core of the concept is a Science and Technology Park with 429 companies, eleven non-university research institutes and six scientific institutes of... [more]

Growing into a new building: AZBA GmbH, the analytics centre in Berlin-Adlershof
Fourteen years ago AZBA GmbH, the analytics centre in Berlin-Adlershof, started operations with ten employees as a WISTA tenant. Today AZBA has a new building and twice as many specialists that support the Adlershof companies and institutes with their analyses. What use is the most modern technology for producing solar cells when the solvents they need are not pure enough? What help is top level research when the institute’s waste water fails... [more]
Affordable medicine: New developments in the pharmaceutical research
Every improvement adds to the price – a rule that until today has applied unvaryingly to new developments in the health care system. But now the laboratories of life scientists have set off a revolution that not only promises considerable ease in the treatment of patients or the search for new medicines, but will also enhance their cost effectiveness. Three companies at the Adlershof Environmental Technology Centre ZBU1 were at the head of the... [more]
Fuelling, version 2.0 – ideas in the field of electromobility
The era of crude oil as a fuel is coming to an end, and the demand is for alternatives with less impact on the environment and the climate. Accordingly, Adlershof companies are testing today their mobility concepts of tomorrow. The greenery on the roof of Solon SE, a photovoltaics company, presents a view of the charging station “Yana”, twelve solar modules that inexorably follow the path of the sun. They are connected to a so called redox flow... [more]
Of men and machines
The relationship between man and machine is one of mixed feelings. To understand this you don’t need to have attempted the legendary example of programming a video recorder. “Most of the operating instructions for technical equipment have been written from the manufacturer’s viewpoint,” explained Hartmut Wandke. “And of course he wants to show you first and foremost everything his product can do.” A much more sensible approach, Wandke...

“Don’t call me a camera”
Forest fires destroy ecosystems and timberland, settlements,and inevitably people’s lives. Moreover they release every year more carbon dioxide than global motor traffic. Utilising the algorithms of the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) the Adlershof technology centre IQ Wireless has therefore develop “FireWatch”. A different form of spreading destruction, namely the infection of entire production halls with computer viruses and malware, is the... [more]
“We don’t take just anybody”
With a remarkable resemblance to stone barracks with annexe modernised to western standards the low built structure caused mixed feelings among the assembled press on the day it was opened on 11th September 1991. In a time the institutes and establishments of the former Academy of Sciences in Adlershof were being phased out the media commented on the spectacle presented by the new startup centre as “a celebration of a sham” on the one side and...

Research as the driving power
In Adlershof the policies of strategic partnerships culminate in successful spinoffs in many fields of microsystem technologies. One of the drives behind this trend is the Ferdinand Braun Institute for High Frequency Engineering (FBH). Dr Jürgen Sebastian, Managing Director of JENOPTIK Diode Lab GmbH of Berlin Adlershof, confessed that his company’s decision to move here was not only swayed by the location’s close relations with the FBH: “We...

Fresh meat guaranteed
The controller aims his scanner like a pistol at the joint of pork. The small yet subtle difference: He won’t be making any holes. Instead the laser light is reflected and returns a wealth of information on the condition of the raw joint. A scene like this has long ceased to be a vision of the future. Under the overall control of the Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration (IZM) researchers have developed a fresh meat scanner... [more]
