Potsdam Science Park is one of the fastest-growing places for business in the state of Brandenburg. Its allure continues to strengthen as a startup and relocation destination. A dedicated Transfer & Founders Team is there to put people in touch with experts, and hosts a range of knowledge-sharing and workshop events. Team member Jana Dotzek talks to us about how their events like Rooftop Pitch Potsdam and the PSP Conference ensure that great ideas from scientists make it to the market.
Strong in research – the two Fraunhofer Institutes at the Potsdam Science Park: Learn what Fraunhofer IAP Institute Director Prof. Dr. Alexander Böker and Dr. Eva Ehrentreich-Förster, Director (acting) at the Fraunhofer IZI-BB, see this growing research location in Potsdam-Golm. Both emphasize the excellent collaboration and settlement opportunities at the Potsdam Science Park.
‘It was a very wise decision by the founding fathers and mothers of this university in the early 1990s to include this location in Potsdam-Golm – today Potsdam Science Park – in the university concept.’, says Prof. Dr. Oliver Günther Ph.D., president of the University of Potsdam. Mathematics and Computer Science, as well as the combination of Geosciences, Biosciences and Environmental Sciences, but also Health are some of the topics that are strong at the Potsdam Science Park in Potsdam-Golm.
Research is the core of the Potsdam Science Park. Let us introduce two of our institutes: The Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces (MPICI) is concerned with the hidden dimensions. The Max Planck Institute for Molecular Plant Physiology (MPI-MP) researches the metabolism and growth of plants.
It is exciting to witness the growth of an innovation location like the Potsdam Science Park every day. 12,500 employees work here, including 9,000 students and people from all over the world. What makes this location so special is the excellent research density. On site with us are two Fraunhofer Institutes, three Max Planck Institutes, the University of Potsdam with two of its faculties. The proximity of the research institutes to each other and to the incubator and innovation centres enables an excellent transfer of scientific results into the economy and the establishment of startups.

With institutes like the Fraunhofer and Max Planck Institutes on site as well as the University of Potsdam, the Potsdam Science Park is among future-oriented places with top-level research in the capital region. But what about the future of this growing hotspot for science and business itself? How could the area develop and what could it look like? We spoke to Sabrina Schwandt from dh | IMMOBILIEN, a real estate company that will soon build in the centre of the Potsdam Science Park.
