TU Berlin

The Technische Universität Berlin is one of the leading research universities in Germany. It has seen a continuous rise in third-party funding and set up three clusters thanks to the award of Excellence Strategy funding. It also ranks highly in international league tables and have received numerous prizes and accolades including Alexander von Humboldt Professorships, Leibniz Awards and grants from the European Research Council.
The international reputation and special profile as a university bringing together technical subjects with the humanities, economics, and social and planning sciences provide a firm basis for interdisciplinary research. This takes place most notably in number of successful collaborative projects.

Key Application Areas

TU Berlin's research activities are structured around six areas of specialization and informed by their competencies and social responsibilities:

Materials, Design and Manufacturing:
This key application area encompasses innovations in the material sciences utilizing a holistic examination of the production systems and development lines needed to manufacture marketable products.

Cyber-Physical Systems
TU Berlin possesses numerous research competencies in this overall field, for instance in imbedded systems, non-linear physics, biologically oriented chemistry, biotechnology, cognitive robotics, neurocomputational sciences, knowledge research, medical technologies, in addition to information and communication technology.

Energy Systems and Sustainable Resource Management
Areas of research presently focus on efficient gas turbines, photovoltaic systems, networks and functional energy storage, energy-efficient cities, and water supplies.

Infrastructure and Mobility
Against the backdrop of climate change, research here focuses on optimizing settlement development in urban and regional environments, understanding policy decisions with respect to infrastructural measures, and developing technical and traffic engineering measures and related technical innovations, for instance in the areas of eMobility or networking.

Knowledge and Communication Systems
TU Berlin actively addresses a broad range of research topics such as Systematic Knowledge Research; Work System Design; Human-Machine Interface Systems; Cultural Reflection, Ethics and Gender-Critical Perspectives of Knowledge and Communications Systems; and Technology, Innovation and Knowledge Management.


TU Berlin as a Gatekeeper

Sustainable technologies and solutions are huge challenges. Therefore, TU Berlin has excellent research cooperations. Besides his regional network with the Humboldt University and Free University of Berlin, TU Berlin has also many international cooperations with universities. To support the transfer of technology and knowledge TU Berlin has many close collaborations with partners of industry and society.



Siemens AG

Funded in 1847, Siemens is nowadays the largest industrial manufacturing company in Europe. Siemens and its subsidiaries employ approximately 379,000 people worldwide and reported global revenue of around €83 billion in 2018 according to its earnings release.
In its history, Siemens experienced a lot of changes and adapted their products and services very often due to strategic reorientation.
To shape the future within the global megatrends like digitalization, globalization and climate change, Siemens describes new Company Core Technologies (CCTs), where Siemens strives for technological leadership. In fact, the CCTs have been determined to be critical for Siemens’ long-term success and of its customers. Around €500 million of the company’s R&D expenditures in the current fiscal year have been earmarked for the CCTs:
Additive Manufacturing
Autonomous Robotics
