Future technologies from idea to innovative product
The German capital region provides top conditions for innovation and growth. A high concentration of excellent universities and research facilities is one of the location's great strengths. This is particularly positive for the innovative growth sectors and future fields that are combined in the five capital region clusters. Innovative products for the global markets of the future are being created here – at the interface between the sectors and in close partnership with the players along the entire value chain.
Where the heart beats! The capital region is a leading location of the healthcare industries. Science, clinics and business work closely together in a unique density.
ICT | Media | Creative Industries
Start-up capital and creative center! An established media location with a dynamic start-up and creative scene, Berlin activates innovation and issues worldwide.
Transport | Mobility | Logistics
Always on the move! The capital region relies on efficient and ecofriendly solutions for passenger and cargo transport by intelligent networking between different transport carriers.
Energetic and environmentally oriented! Berlin is a pioneer in electromobility and in the field of energy technologies, having a distinctive industrial and scientific landscape.
With a systematic innovation policy as part of the joint innovation strategy of the states Berlin and Brandenburg (innoBB), we support and encourage these sectors to develop further as regional clusters in order to position the German capital region as a leading international business and technology location.
With the project "Development and Implementation of Regional Innovation Strategies 2021 (BBFM 2021), the state of Berlin is promoting the development of the clusters Energy Technology; Healthcare Industry; ICT, Media and Creative Industries; Optics and Photonics; and Transport, Mobility and Logistics. In addition, the project includes the sub-themes Clean Technologies, Industrial Production, Smart Cities, and Technology Transfer and Innovation Management. These flank the development of the clusters and make cross-sectional contributions to the implementation of the innovation strategy innoBB 2025, which is supported jointly with the state of Brandenburg and provides the framework for cluster development.
The operational activities of the cluster management teams focus on networking the stakeholders from science and industry, initiating and supporting collaborative projects at the state, federal and EU level, and marketing the clusters. A special thematic focus for all clusters is formed by the key topics of innoBB 2025 - digitalization, real labs and test fields, startups and foundations, skilled workers and work 4.0.
In addition to the innovative clusters, Berlin is a sought-after location for service industries and industrial production.
Berlin has established itself as an important European hub for the services sector. More and more companies with global operations are opening service centers in Berlin and offering business services.
