22 Technology Park

22 Technology Park Adlershof Materials currently being developed are mainly used in micro-, opto- and power electronics, photovoltaics, in optics and laser technology, as well as in sensors and acoustic electronics. The IKZ research spectrum encompasses volume crystals, crystalline layers and nanostructures as well as the development of crystal growth technologies using a variety of materials. In October 1990, the German Science Council recommended that the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) should develop methods and reference materials for quality assurance in analytical chemistry. BAM was meant to serve a role in the field of chemical measurement technology similar to that played by the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) in the field of physical measurement technology. BAM followed up on this recommendation by creating the Adlershof branch of BAM. Today, BAM at Berlin-Adlershof is engaged in multiple areas of investigation, including: quality assurance and methods of chemical analysis, process analysis, bioanalysis, matrix reference materials, trace analysis, mass spectral coupling methods, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, vibration and time-resolved spectroscopy and the secondary properties of reference materials. The Business Environment According to WISTA, the number of companies in Adlershof exceeded 1000 in 2014. Among them are 140 companies in the media sector, 380 commercial enterprises, as well as shops, hotels and restaurants. At its heart, however, are a variety of small to medium-sized high-tech companies. Around 100 businesses and research institutes in a variety of analytical fields make Adlershof a location demonstrating dynamic growth. These enterprises constitute a complete value chain, from fundamental research through the development of methods and devices right on through to serial production, a compact range of services as well as sales. The report entitled “Analytic City Adlershof” offers a thorough overview of what the site offers. In addition to university-affiliated research, the 2014 edition lists companies and institutes engaged in the following areas: • Life Sciences • Analytical Chemistry • Surface Analytics • Optics / Photovoltaics • Process Analysis The development of Adlershof is characterized by the fruitful interaction of the various players co-located there. In addition, regional and supra-regional meetings serve to promote local and regional networks. Not only was the summer 2014 conference on “Optical analysis for medical and industrial applications” held in Adlershof, for instance, so, too, was the annual meeting of the EOS European Optical Society. Alongside these industry gatherings, “Analytic City Adlershof” has developed a number of other ideas as well. Along with its regularly published report, the initiative is also planning workshops, exhibitions and a testing laboratory. And, under the umbrella of WISTA, an expanded Internet presence is also planned, which will allow specialists in analysis to exchange ideas as well as submit requests and offers of collaboration. | 5 5

Potsdam-Golm Science Park 23 4.2 Potsdam-Golm Science Park The town of Golm – now part of Potsdam – is able to look back on more than 750 years of history. For a long time, the town’s history was dominated by agriculture; since the mid-1990s, however, Golm has become home to the largest science park in the state of Brandenburg. Not only do the University of Potsdam, the Max Planck Society and Fraunhofer Gesellschaft currently have institutes in the Potsdam-Golm Science Park, there are also a growing number of young, innovative firms located there as well. A total of more than 2500 people are employed at the science park, alongside 9,000 enrolled students. Golm offers a pleasant work environment, situated right alongside a landscape conservation area, as well as both a good quality of life in the city of Potsdam and surrounding areas together with an extremely family-friendly atmosphere. Projects currently in the pipeline include a daycare center, student accommodations, a number of retail outlets, not to mention the expansion of the institutes currently resident there. Professional site management is promoting the development of the science park through targeted expansion of infrastructure and by bundling together the strengths and interests of all the institutions, institutes, organizations, and businesses located in the Potsdam – Golm Science Park. Companies interested in moving to the park and young entrepreneurs alike benefit in particular from existing networks and can also draw on the experience and support provided by prestigious institutes and prominent figures working at the park. University Research The University of Potsdam, founded in 1991, has located parts of its departments of Mathematics and Natural Sciences as well as its Human Sciences Department at the Potsdam-Golm Science Park. Close collaborative relationships have been established between the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences and non-academic institutes at the science park through jointly appointed professorships and numerous research
