The Forschungsverbund Berlin

FVB is one of Berlin’s largest non-university research institutions. It comprises seven institutes that conduct cutting-edge research in the fields of natural, engineering, life and environmental sciences. Their successes are evident in outstanding evaluations, the numerous ERC Grants awarded, and their involvement in four clusters of excellence.

The institutes under the umbrella of the Forschungsverbund Berlin are members of the Leibniz Association, and are funded jointly by the German federation and the federal states. FVB provides its seven institutes with a Joint Administration, creating key synergies in administration and governance, as well as a platform for academic exchange.

Excellent Research – Efficient Organization.
