24 Potsdam-Golm Science

24 Potsdam-Golm Science Park Non-University Research The Fraunhofer Gesellschaft and Max Planck Society each have a campus of their own in Golm and are represented by several institutes. The Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research (Fraunhofer IAP) focuses on the entire spectrum of polymer applications. In addition to the environmentally friendly and cost-effective manufacture and processing of polymers on a laboratory and pilot plant scale, the institute also provides polymer characterization. There are broad array of potential applications, ranging from biotechnology, medicine, pharmacy and cosmetics to electronics and photonics, applications in packaging, in environmental and sewage technology as well as in the automotive, paper, construction and paint industries. Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research © Till Budde projects. Institutes of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences located on the Golm campus are: • Institute of Biochemistry and Biology • Institute of Chemistry • Institute of Geography • Institute of Environmental Science • Institute of Earth Science • Institute of Physics and Astronomy These university institutes use a variety of analytical methods in research and teaching. Of particularly interest are the questions being addressed in the field of biology. At the Institute of Biochemistry and Biology (IBB), for example, there are in-house working groups on molecular bioanalytics and bioelectronics (joint appointment with the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT), life science materials (joint appointment with the GKSS Research Centre Geesthacht) and in microscopy. The Bioanalytics and Bioprocessing Branch of the Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology (Fraunhofer IZI-BB) researches and develops lab-onchip technologies as well as cellular and cell-free biotechnology for use in the fields of bioanalytics and molecular diagnostics. The Max Planck Society is represented by three institutions in Golm. They share a central building with a lecture hall, seminar rooms, administrative offices and cafeteria, but are otherwise completely independent. The Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute) has established itself as a leading international research center for gravitational physics since its founding in 1995. | 1 1

Potsdam-Golm Science Park 25 The Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces (MPIKG) was founded in 1992. Current research topics include polymeric films, membranes, organic and inorganic nanostructures, microcapsules, biomineralization, nano- and microreactors, molecular motors and filaments as well as the chemistry and biology of carbohydrates. Research is also currently being conducted on biomimetic systems. Drawing on examples from nature, new hierarchical materials and active systems are being investigated that can be adaptive, self-healing or self-assembling. The Max Planck Institute for Molecular Plant Physiology (MPI-MP), founded in 1994, is mainly concerned with studying processes that determine or affect plant growth and biomass production. In this context, analysis focuses on substances absorbed through the roots, the assembly and disassembly of ingredients, their transport, storage and mobilization, as well as the question of how these processes are regulated. The methods used make it possible to examine the ingredient composition and gene activities of a large number of samples. Using bioinformatics, computer models can be generated from the mass of data gathered. Other research topics at MPI-MP include the physiology and genetics of cell organelles as well as the molecular mechanisms involved in the evolution of plant genomes. The range of methods applied includes techniques from molecular biology, genetics, physiology, biochemistry, biophysics and bioinformatics. The Golm Innovation Center GO:IN in Potsdam © Thomas Ritschel physics and chemistry.The available infrastructure not only includes state-of-the-art laboratories and well-appointed offices, but, more importantly, business-related services, individualized consulting and integration into regional networks. The GO:INcubator offers support to graduates, academic staff, postdocs, professors, entrepreneurs and independent inventors from across Germany in developing their projects, start-ups and business ventures. As of the end of 2014, a total of 18 companies were located at GO:IN. | Business Concentration in the Golm Innovation Center The Golm Innovation Center GO:IN is an innovation and start-up center oriented around the natural sciences. It offers an ideal setting in terms of infrastructure together with an inspiring scientific environment for research and development start-ups and SMEs in the fields of biology,
