Innovative Capital Region
The capital region Berlin-Brandenburg offers the best conditions for innovations in all of Germany. Among the extraordinary strengths of the location rank the high concentration of outstanding higher education institutions and research institutes and the close connection between the economic and scientific communities this connection creates. A large development potential in Berlin-Brandenburg can be found chiefly in the Clusters Healthcare Industries | ICT, Media and Creative Industries | Transport, Mobility and Logistics | Energy Technology | Optics and Photonics. The goal of the “Joint Innovation Strategy of the States of Berlin and Brandenburg” (innoBB), which was adopted by the states of Berlin and Brandenburg in 2011, is to promote these clusters across state borders, and thereby to position the location Berlin-Brandenburg in a leading role in the face of the international competition.
