PERSPECTIVES BERLIN’S INNOVATION LOCATIONS Eleven sites in Berlin where the future is already becoming a reality BERLINER CAMPUS CHARLOTTENBURG Campus Charlottenburg, one of the largest inner-city university complexes in Europe, combines technology and creativity. These scientific research facilities are embedded in a modern district offering a rich array of retail, services and culture. Some of Berlin‘s most exciting startups are active here, companies that are already shaping tomorrow‘s science and technology today. WWW.CAMPUS-CHARLOTTENBURG.ORG SIEMENSSTADT BERLIN TXL Siemens’ current location in Berlin-Spandau is set to be developed and expanded into a modern city quarter by 2030. The existing industrial architecture provides an attractive environment for new working models as well as an excellent basis for new production conditions in the future. Yet another aim is to strengthen select key technologies and innovation fields by means of close cooperation between science and industry. Berlin’s Tegel Airport will be closed six months after the opening of the capital region’s new “BER” international airport. The site will be transformed into a research and industrial park for urban technologies called “Berlin TXL - The Urban Tech Republic.” Up to 1,000 small and large companies and a total of 20,000 employees will research, develop and generate goods and services at the Urban Tech Republic. More than 2,500 students from the renowned Beuth University of Applied Sciences will also move into the former terminal building. WWW.BERLINTXL.DE TEMPELHOF AIRPORT BERLIN SÜDWEST With a gross floor area of roughly 300,000 square meters, Berlin’s former Tempelhof Airport is Europe‘s largest architectural monument. In the coming years, the airport complex is set to become a site of experimentation and a new urban district for art, culture and the creative industries. Since 2011, the company known as Tempelhof Projekt GmbH has been responsible for the preservation, restoration, operation and development of the airport on behalf of the Berlin Senate Department for Urban Development and Housing. WWW.THF-BERLIN.DE Berlin SÜDWEST has been one of Germany’s four major science and innovation locations for more than 100 years. A number of startups have emerged out of the many renowned scientific institutions operating at this traditional location, especially in the life sciences and biotech sector. The FUBIC Technology and Startup Center, which is currently under construction and scheduled for completion in 2022, will create a campus and provide startups associated with the FU Berlin and other science institutions and established companies with space for synergies, communication, development and growth on 50,000 square meters.
