Adlershof's Technology- and Start-Up Centres
More than 1.000 companies and scientific institutions; over 15,000 employees and a turnover of around 1.6 billion Euros sum up the economic power of Germany’s leading Science and Technology Park Berlin Adlershof.
Five technology centres – Photonics/Optics, Microsystems/Materials, IT/Media, Biotechnology/Environment and Renewable Energy/Photovoltaics – provide the perfect infrastructure. The centre’s directors facilitate specialist working groups, networking, support cooperation and take part in sector events and trade shows.
IGZ, OWZ and Spin-Off-Zone, the three start-up centres based at Adlershof, are located close to the Humboldt University’s Natural Sciences Campus, and the ten non-university research organisations. They offer special welcome packs for young and innovative businesses.
