We are pioneers

– and have been for 30 years. On 12 March 1991, an agreement was signed to create an “integrated landscape of research and industry” in Adlershof. That same year, WISTA was founded in September. Its mission: Creating the conditions for cooperation between research and industry to create innovative companies and help them grow.

We have a fine intuition

If like us you are operating on the interface of public policy and administration with business and research, it requires some finesse, and a clear view of what companies need now and in the future. Our actions are always geared towards long-term success.

Our focus is on a knowledge-based economy and on sustainable economic growth in Berlin

For this reason, we bring together research and industry and are fully committed to transferring knowledge from science and research into businesses.

Berlin has a science landscape that is globally unique

We are contributing to the creation of innovative products and services based on scientific findings. It is our goal to establish Berlin as one of the most appealing locations in Europe for innovation, research, and development.

We are confronting the great challenges of our time

We want to contribute to tackling them in the future (such as climate change and the environment). To this end, we do not limit ourselves to stimulating the regional economy but also want to address broader issues – for research, development, products, and services.
