Regional and international cooperation
HTW Berlin cooperates with regional and international institutions as well as key players in the areas of science, business, management and culture. As a research partner, HTW Berlin is involved in numerous education, culture and regional infrastructure projects as well as development initiatives and economic development programmes.

R&D projects for the practice world

Service from a single source at the Cooperation Centre for Applied Sciences
KONTAKT serves at the central point of contact for all cooperation enquiries. It connects people with the right experts at the university and helps to get collaborative research activities off to a flying start.

Research communication

Research results for the public
HTW Berlin holds numerous events and fairs relating to science and research every year. All HTW Berlin projects are presented in the university’s online research catalogue.

The “Beiträge und Positionen” series (Papers and Positions) explores current research focus areas that scientists are currently working on at the university.
