We live Science.


to one of the most innovative locations for science in the Berlin-Brandenburg metropolitan region. At the Potsdam Science Park, top international research meets excellent education and research-related production. Research institutions such as the Max Planck and Fraunhofer Institutes, the University of Potsdam, the Brandenburg State Archives and more than 20 companies and start-ups jointly create a “Campus of the Future” here in Potsdam-Golm.

More than 12,500 people conduct research, work and study here in the fields of biotechnology, medical technology, optics, geosciences, astrophysics and gravitational physics. And the number is constantly growing. All this in the countryside, embedded in Brandenburg’s diverse cultural and natural landscape – and only 30 minutes from Berlin’s city centre. This is the Potsdam Science Park.

LEA proteins are still a mystery in plant science, which is why Orarat Ginsawaeng is taking a closer look at their functions at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology (MPI-MP). Hear about her research and thoughts on the Potsdam Science Park in her interview.

Tina Stavemann from our Welcome Service advises international scientists and researchers on their arrival at the Potsdam Science Park and ensures that everyone has a good start. Her dynamic work also offers her the opportunity to follow how research results are published, how scientists receive awards and how startups are created that transfer new knowledge into the economy. Find out more in her interview!

Dr. Rayan Guterman and Dr. Arren Bar-Even in a lab

Greenshift Labs has not yet a product on the market, but two very dedicated scientists who develop solutions towards a sustainable economy. We met with the founders Dr. Arren Bar-Even and Dr. Ryan Guterman and talked with them about oversaturated markets, new ways of producing commodities and how to become independent from agriculture.

Doctoral Student Wiebke Sabrowski is researching multi-resistant bacteria at the Fraunhofer IZI-BB (Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology, Branch Bioanalytics and Bioprocesses) and hopes to apply what she learns in hospitals to reduce further spreading.

Was the Big Bang really the beginning of our universe or is there more to find out? Dr. Jean-Luc Lehners, Leader of the ERC Research Group “Theoretical Cosmology” at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute) and his team at the Potsdam Science Park are investigating these and other questions.

The community of scientists and researchers at the Potsdam Science Park not only supports an innovative and fast-moving environment, but also lends itself to building sustainable relationships with fellow colleagues. Dr. Anne Zemella has been at the PSP for seven years. Currently, she is working on a post-doc at the Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology, Branch Bioanalytics and Bioprocesses IZI-BB, focussing on the production of proteins. To hear more about her experience and her fascinating research, watch her interview here.

Dr.-Ing. Murat Tutuş, Head of Department “Membranes and Functional Films” at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP, believes in sustainable future. He and his team of researchers are developing new membranes made of polymer compounds with special properties at the Potsdam Science Park. Find out more about Dr.-Ing. Murat Tutuş and his membranes research at the Potsdam Science Park in this interview.

Darya Niakhaichyk, International Officer at the Max Planck Institute of Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute), is passionate about her work with international scientists at the Potsdam Science Park and has found the perfect spot to relax and reconnect with nature!

Meet Dr. Kerry Gilmore, Groupleader Biomolecular Systems Department at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, and find out about THE most satisfying moment in his career and what he likes about the Potsdam Science Park.

Brit Holland, Director’s Assistant for Astrophysical and Cosmological Relativity at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute) about her work at the Potsdam Science Park, the international community and why this special research site inspires everybody.
