Potsdam Science Park

Welcome to our innovation site in Berlin-Brandenburg! As a growing destination for life sciences, the Potsdam Science Park is increasingly attracting companies and start-ups to the German capitol region. Our three Max Planck and two Fraunhofer Institutes, the University of Potsdam, the Brandenburg Main State Archive and a well-connected science community are jointly developing a campus of the future in Potsdam-Golm. More than 12,500 people research, work and study here, specialising in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, digital diagnostics, new materials, green chemistry, earth and environmental sciences, astro- and gravitational physics and various other disciplines. With the Golm train station, our park offers a direct link for visitors and commuters from and to Berlin.
