‘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.
Learn how Max Planck Directors Prof. Dr. Peter H. Seeberger of MPICI and Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Mark Stitt (em. 2021) of MPI-MP see this growing research location in Potsdam-Golm. Both emphasize the importance of close collaboration and a vibrant environment for young researchers as well as companies and spin-offs.

Saloni Agarwal, being a microbiology student at the Institute of Biochemistry and Biology of the University of Potsdam, regards it as her duty to work on a better future. In this interview she talks to us about opportunities and ambition as a young scientist, how she stumbled upon just the right place to be and lets us know her favourite spot at the Potsdam Science Park. Take a look!
Always nice to meet her: Melanie Fiebig works as a cook at the Potsdam Science Park. Together with her colleaguse as well as with her good sense of humour and top-secret recipes, ensures every day that all scientists and staff on the Max Planck Campus have enough energy to lift research and other solutions for the future off the ground. Many thanks, Melanie Fiebig!
For our interview series “Game Changers” we met deep technology entrepreneur Mike Richardson, who develops spectrographic sensors with his company Photonic Insights (www.photonicinsights.com) in the GO:IN Startup Space at the Potsdam Science Park. Find out what drives Richardson and what advice he shares with other founders.
Marion Krause is archivist at the Brandenburg Main State Archive (BLHA) in the Potsdam Science Park. What she likes most about her job is the connection between history and personal stories, past and present. With 54,000 running metres of historical files and documents at the BLHA – from biographies of important personalities over stories of companies to many historical treasures from the Brandenburg region – there is always something new to discover. Learn more in the interview!
Micha Wijesingha Ahchige, PhD student at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology (MPI-MP), dedicates his plant research to a future in which all people have enough food. He is especially interested in the ability of crop plants such as tomatoes to deal with different environmental conditions. Learn what else he likes about being a scientist at the Potsdam Science Park in his 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!
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.
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.
