Berlin – a science and research metropolis

Packed with researchers, diversity and excellence: thanks to its many universities and independent research institutes, Berlin offers the ideal conditions for research at the highest level.

As well as offering optimum conditions for research and a research atmosphere open to partnerships, the German capital also impresses scientists with the range of cultural and leisure activities on offer: Berlin is a place people love to live in.

At Brain City Berlin, we provide an overview of the science hub Berlin, offer insights into the latest research issues and news from the Berlin science scene and introduce you to our ambassadors.
