Einstein Center Digital Future opened

April 3, 2017

The Einstein Center Digital Future aims to become a cross-university nucleus for supporting and researching digital structures in the sciences, the economy and society. The project in Berlin is supposed to provide more connections, new forms of cooperation, a concentration on innovative cutting-edge interdisciplinary research and excellently trained young scientific talent instead of focusing on new individual initiatives. 50 new professorships will be set up in the field of digitalization and a total of 38.5 million euros will flow into the new Einstein Center. 

This unique project has been made possible by numerous partners in business, sciences and politics. In addition to the four Berlin universities and the two universities of applied sciences, eight non-university research institutions are also involved, among others three Berlin based Fraunhofer Institutes: Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications, Heinrich Hertz Institute, HHI, Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communications Systems Focus and Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintregration IZM.
