Berlin Start-up funding programme in the field of material science

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 www.inam.berlin/admalab.

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.

    Podcast | Der Klimawandel und die Stadt: Mehr Grün oder mehr Photovoltaik?
    Wie umgehen mit begrenztem Platz? Städte und Kommunen müssen sich jetzt auf die Folgen des Klimawandels vorbereiten. Gründächer, begrünte Fassaden und großflächige Entsiegelungen könnten zu einem besseren Mikroklima beitragen. Aber wird der Platz nicht auch für Photovoltaik benötigt?

    In einem kontroversen Gespräch loten die Experten Björn Rau (HZB, BAIP) und Jens Hasse (Deutsches Institut für Urbanistik) die Optionen aus und finden neue Lösungen.

    Humboldt Fellow Alexander Gray comes to HZB
    Alexander Gray from Temple University in Philadelphia, USA, is working with HZB physicist Florian Kronast to investigate novel 2D quantum materials at BESSY II. With the fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, he can now deepen this cooperation. At BESSY II, he wants to further develop depth-resolved X-ray microscopic and spectroscopic methods in order to investigate 2D quantum materials and devices for new information technologies even more thoroughly.

    Green hydrogen: Nanostructured nickel silicide shines as a catalyst
    Electrical energy from wind or sun can be stored as chemical energy in hydrogen, an excellent fuel and energy carrier. The prerequisite for this, however, is efficient electrolysis of water with inexpensive catalysts. For the oxygen evolution reaction at the anode, nanostructured nickel silicide now promises a significant increase in efficiency. This was demonstrated by a group from the HZB, Technical University of Berlin and the Freie Universität Berlin as part of the CatLab research platform with measurements among others at BESSY II.
