FUBIC Innovation Centre in Berlin Dahlem

Incubators provide the ideal conditions for the initial steps into business life. This has been working for a long time in Adlershof, so Berlin is now relying on the knowhow of WISTA Management GmbH when setting up and expanding new incubators in Berlin.

In Dahlem, a WISTA team headed by Jörg Israel has already launched the next stage of the knowhow transfer. Near the FU campus, a former hospital of the US armed forces is to become the FUBIC Innovation Centre. The development plan is still undergoing revision. According to Jörg Israel, start-ups will be working and technology companies setting up head office there by 2022.

Even now, the clinic is home to start-ups as interim users. Needs analyses have shown that the extremely lively start-up scene at the FU will require combined office and laboratory areas, so the building will have to be completely gutted. “The plans are for about 15,000 square metres of space in total, with half of that for the laboratories,” said Israel.

Start-ups will benefit from low rents and flexible leases, or the ideal conditions for their companies to flourish in the early stages, for instance Alacris Theranostics GmbH in Dahlem, which won the German Innovation Award. Its molecular analyses of tumours allow highly precise prognoses on the effects and side effects of medication on individual patients, making personalised treatment possible.
