Berlin – City of Science
Knowledge and education are the
most important resources of modern Berlin. Historically, the city has
had an unparalleled academic and research-intensive climate  at its
disposal, and has the biggest and most dense research clusters in
Germany. The quality of this scientific location, as both the
representatives of the universities and research institutes as well as
companies in Berlin agree, is a distinct advantage for large firms and
niche providers alike.
With its four universities, eight Fachhochschulen (universities of applied sciences), three art schools and 18 private universities, Berlin offers one of the most creative, lively and varied university landscapes in Europe. Around 15 percent of the students come from other countries; in addition there are numerous cooperative agreements with partner universities around the world. The Berlin universities and research institutes are tightly connected with commercial firms in Berlin, especially small and medium-sized ones. The City for Science, Economy and Media Berlin-Adlershof , the BioTech Campus Berlin-Buch  and around 20 other inner city technology parks and start-up centers  offer the best conditions for the development of new ideas and for transforming these ideas into innovative products and processes. With its special offers, an international start-up center  targets above all founders of internationally expanding companies and young innovative companies from all around the world.
For these reasons, Berlin belongs to the largest and most diverse scientific regions in Europe. At the Berlin universities, as well as at over 60 research institutes in the city and in the surrounding region, around 200,000 people from all around the world are teaching, researching, working and studying. Berlin invests around 1.5 billion euro each year in its universities.
The plan called "Knowledge paves Berlin's future", developed in 2008 by the Berlin federal state government, promotes the city's state-of-the-art research facilities, including the Technical University, and gives them substantial, lasting support, both financially and structurally, through the Einstein Foundation of Berlin. The universities, the research institutes and the federal state have joint their forces in order to increase the international competitiveness of the city and to heighten the worldwide visibility of science in Berlin. For this reason, Berlin is on the best path to becoming one of the most attractive locations for science and research in the world.
