With foresight and focus!
Photonics have a long tradition in the capital region: Siemens, Osram and AEG Berlin have been brightly illuminating the “City of Light” for more than 100 years. Since then, the field of photonics and microsystems technologies has undergone significant developments. In addition to traditional lighting technology, they are key component technologies of high-tech products – such as in the fields of medicine and communications technology.
Nearly 400 technology companies and more than 30 university and non-university research institutes research and develop high-tech components, systems and products in Berlin for the world market. A total of 16,600 people work in the innovative core of the cluster. With its wide range of expertise, the capital region has become one of the world's leading locations for photonics and microsystems technologies.
Our comprehensive service and information offers allow us to support and advise photonics and microsystems technology companies that want to become established in Berlin, move to Berlin or grow here.
