“I congratulate the city of Berlin, which is home to so much scientific talent in so many outstanding institutions. The great support for research there is paying off: almost 100 ERC grants valued at €180 million have to date been awarded to support the ambitious ideas of researchers in Berlin.” PROF.

JESSE PRINZ PHILOSOPHY AND NEUROSCIENCE, EINSTEIN VISITING FELLOW, BERLIN SCHOOL OF MIND AND BRAIN, HUMBOLDT UNIVERSITY BERLIN PROFESSOR JEAN-PIERRE BOURGUIGNON PRESIDENT OF THE EUROPEAN RESEARCH COUNCIL (ERC) “Berlin is not only home to practically every academic discipline at the highest level, it is also where these scientific projects come together, making the city one of the most exciting research locations for me.” DR.

Higher education and research are international, and so is Berlin Berlin is one of the world’s most popular cities to attend university. One-fifth of the people studying here come from abroad, and the number is rising. The city and its academic landscape are also attracting an increasing number of recent graduates and established professors from all over the world. This benefits research and teaching and the city as a whole. Internationality is an integral part of the capital’s self-image. Berlin’s academic and scientific institutions are among the pioneers in internationalisation and enjoy extensive global networks of partnerships. Berlin researchers collaborate with institutions all over the world. Every semester, thousands of Berlin students have the opportunity to study abroad and thousands of others come to Berlin. The internationality is also reflected in the range of courses on offer, whether in joint courses with foreign partner universities, in the growing number of master’s degrees taught in foreign languages (mostly English), and through international teaching projects and visiting professorships. Through strategic partnerships with renowned universities all over the world from Beijing to Princeton, from Oxford to Jerusalem, Berlin’s universities are firmly anchored in the international network of leading research locations. Local presences, such as the Technische Universität Berlin campus in Al Gouna, Egypt, and the Freie Universität liaison offices on five continents, also promote the international networking of Brain City Berlin. Berlin’s universities and research institutions are involved worldwide in development projects and in setting up new structures to support teaching and research. Strong partner in European research Berlin is an active player in European research. It thus strengthens the European idea and helps Europe to remain competitive in the long term and to meet the major social and economic challenges of the future. Scientists from Berlin participated in a total of 1,500 EU research projects in the 7th EU framework programme from 2007 to 2013, and received almost €585 million in EU funding. This trend has continued in the follow-up Horizon 2020 programme. Halfway through the funding period, Berlin researchers have already received €312 million in further EU funding. Erasmus at 30 Europe celebrated 30 years of the Erasmus programme in 2017. Berlin has long been the most popular German destination for Erasmus scholars and is also one of the most sought-after in Europe. At the same time, many Berlin students have used the programme to study or conduct research abroad and have returned with new experiences and language skills. 13
