The six Humboldt University Institutes at Adlershof
The Humboldt University’s mathematics and science campus at Adlershof hosts the Institutes for Chemistry, Geography, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics and Psychology, and their 8,000 students and 1,000 staff. Here, it’s all about research. Library, computer and multimedia services are located in the Erwin Schrödinger Centre. Information about services, studies, leisure, job and internship opportunities as well as canteen menus, can be found on the "Services for Students".
Ten non-university research organisations
1,600 staff work in the ten non-university research organisations in the fields of light, materials and models: BAM (analytical chemistry, reference materials) // BTU (air chemistry) // DLR (planetary research, transportation systems) // FBH (high frequency technology) // Fraunhofer-Institut für Offene Kommunikationssysteme FOKUS (computer architecture, software engineering) // HZB (materials, energy) // IKZ (crystal growth) // ISAS (analytical sciences) // MBI (nonlinear optics, short pulse spectroscopy) // PTB (photon radiometry).
Many of these organisations once formed part of the former East German Academy of Science. Today, they all form part of the umbrella organisation ‘Joint Initiative of Non-University Research Institutes in Adlershof’, IGAFA.
