The State of Berlin is granting INAM e.V. and its cooperation partners around EUR 1.1 million to set up the new incubator program tailored to start-ups in the field of materials science, AdMaLab - The Berlin Materials and Hardware Lab.

In addition to access to the newly opened research building of the IRIS Adlershof at Humboldt University and to the HySPRINT Innovation Lab at  Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin, stipends will be made available to founders so they can dedicate their time to developing their business ideas and products.

Starting Friday, 3 December 2021, 12:00 noon, founders with a focus on new materials can apply for a place in the incubator programme.

More information on the application process is provided at

In addition to the innovation activities in the lab, the selected startups receive an intensive mentoring and training programme, which is supported by Humboldt Innovation GmbH and experts from various specialist areas.

On 15 December 2021 at 10 a.m., the project partners will provide more detailed information about the incubator programme in a webinar. Interested parties can register here.

With the Berlin Startup Stipendium, which provides the grant, the State of Berlin has launched a funding programme to turn innovative ideas into products for those willing to start a business. With the funding from the European Social Fund and the State of Berlin, scholarship holders can advance their business ideas in various subject areas. Over 120 innovative startup projects have already been supported. This success can now be expanded further with the AdMaLab into the field of materials science.
