Excellent Research and Technologies for the Medicine of the Future
For around 100 years, Berlin-Buch has been renowned for its hospitals and cutting-edge research and is today one of the largest biomedical locations in Germany. The health sector alone generates more than 6,000 jobs, of which almost 3,000 are in basic and clinical research institutions. The Berlin-Buch BiotechPark is one of the leading technology parks in Germany. With the support of the Berlin Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises, this established health care location with its clear focus on biomedicine offers life science companies and research facilities outstanding conditions for synergies and networking on an international level.
Since 1992 the German Federal Government, the state of Berlin and the European Union have invested a total of EUR 502 million in the Buch Campus.
A hallmark of the Campus Berlin-Buch is the close connection between basic and patient-oriented research. It enables the development and application of future-oriented diagnostics and therapies. The Berlin Institute of Health (BIH), founded in 2013, represents a further milestone in the development of these synergies. At the BIH, the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in the Helmholtz Association (MDC) and the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, one of the largest university hospitals in Europe, combine their translational research with a focus on the interdisciplinary approach of systems medicine. This model for enhanced cooperation between world-class university-based and independent research will not only provide a stimulus to the development of the Berlin-Buch site, but also to Berlin’s regional economy and the capital region’s profile as a scientific location.
At present, the Senate Department is supporting project planning and implementation to build or expand existing traffic links, not only consolidating the location’s integration into the supra-regional infrastructure, but also opening up commercial sites to further enhance the site’s appeal.
The green campus, home to a vibrant international community, is oriented on sustainability and is experiencing continual growth. Additional research buildings are being erected, and new technology platforms are being created. In 2019, construction will begin for the next BioMed start-up factory with around 10,000 square meters of office and laboratory space.
