Zukunftsorte are sites with potential space for development and a strong link to science and research. They already have or will have knowledge-based structures supporting the networking of business and science to promote the regional economy’s innovative processes and add to its competitive edge.

The federal state of Berlin (Land Berlin) has a wide range of sites with the potential to become Zukunftsorte. Since these are various sizes with differing profiles, facilities, and stages of development, the city can offer differentiated sites tailored to the needs of companies and institutions interested in Berlin as a business and research location. The vertical menu bar on the left offers more details on the individual Zukunftsorte.

The overall objective is to further strengthen Berlin as a location for future industries and technologies. Here, the Zukunftsorte play a decisive role since they offer attractive sites for technology and knowledge-based companies and space for innovative ideas and creativity. For this reason, the Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises is committed to further enhancing the profile of the Zukunftsorte as sites forging links between business, science and research, optimising their environs and infrastructures to support their development, and creating new opportunities for start-ups and established companies.
