Biotechnology, pharma, analytical technologies and environmental technologies are among Adlershof’s fastest growing technology fields. More than 70 companies with over 800 employees are currently working here. Our companies include: JPT Peptide Technologies, 3B Pharmaceuticals, Scienion, Pensatech Pharma, Vaxxilon Deutschland, and ASCA Angewandte Synthesechemie Adlershof. They are complemented by leading research institutions such as The Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung, BAM), The Leibniz Institute for Ananlytical Science (Leibniz-Institut für Analytische Wissenschaften, ISAS) and the Humboldt University’s Institute for Chemistry.

The high density of university and non-university research institutes offers unique opportunities for interdisciplinary cooperation and production, making Adlershof the leading site for Biotechnology and Life Sciences in Berlin-Brandenburg.
