Partners at a glance

With the aim of strengthening the capital region in the field of "function integration", the know-how of many research institutions from various scientific organizations in Brandenburg and Berlin is to be pooled.

In addition, more than 40 companies have expressed interest in collaborating with the high-performance center or are in the process of exchanging information on specific cooperation projects.
