The Berlin Adlershof Science City is one of the most successful high-technology sites in Germany and Berlin’s largest media site. It is home to 1,041 companies and scientific institutions on an area of 4.2 km² - embedded in an integrated urban planning concept. 16,778 people work and 6,700 study here.

The Science and Technology Park is at the heart of the Adlershof Science City. It encompasses 512 companies and ten non-university research institutes. They focus on: Photonics and Optics, Renewable Energies and Photovoltaics, Microsystems and Materials, IT and Media, Biotechnology and Environment.

Adding to this are six scientific institutes of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. The Media City is home to 147 companies. In the immediate vicinity is a landscaped park and 360 private houses have been developed on an area of 66 ha. Large additional areas enable the Science and Technology Park to grow in the future. The near future years will see the completion of 1,400 housing units for about 2,500 people in the immediate vicinity to the Humboldt-University campus.
