Werner-von-Siemens Centre

for Industry and Science


Campus for industry & science

The Werner-von-Siemens Centre for Industry and Science is located in Siemensstadt 2.0, one of Berlin’s “Zukunftsorte”. We are a dynamic research cooperation at the open heart of production. The diversity of our partners makes the cooperation excellent. The planned co-creation enables effective research supported by short distances. Our fields of research address the technological challenges of industrial production, energy (transition) and mobility transition.

One core characteristic is our integrated approach: a system analysis instead of an individual analysis. The connection to real production enables this holistic view from the user’s point of view – a great advantage, because we are looking for new findings that make a difference for society and for Berlin.

New Materials

At the moment materials for additive manufacturing are still very limited. The link between the materials and the manufacturing process is often uncertain. Therefore, this topic is a focus at the Werner-von-Siemens Centre: We research and develop new materials for additive manufacturing and test their qualification for the corresponding applications.

Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing is a great opportunity for industrial production. Time savings, flexibility and cost savings due to low inventory levels are just some of the advantages. Therefore, we deal with various topics related to Additive Manufacturing: AM-compatible product design, development of AM machines and process monitoring for integrated quality assurance in manufacturing.


The production of the future is a digitalized production. At the Werner-von-Siemens Centre, we are focusing on the cross-sectional topics of data analytics and machine learning in the first step. These topics create the necessary foundations to build on core technologies such as Adaptive Process Intelligence and Digital Twins.

Connected diversity

The ecosystem “Werner-von-Siemens Centre for Industry and Science” is a colorful mix of well-known scientific institutions and universities, excellent industry, innovative SMEs and agile, young companies. They all combine their expertise to form a future-oriented research cooperation.

Who we are

We promote science, research and education and want to drive forward the renewal of industry.

We want to promote pre-competitive knowledge exchange between science, research and industry.

We want to prepare our findings in such a way that we can inform the general public about them.

We are a close research and development cooperation with partners from industry and science, small and medium-sized enterprises, young companies and start-ups.

What we do

The WvSC combines the future topics of change in production technology, mobility and energy. The technologies digitization, additive manufacturing and new materials are used across the board.

Our first research projects concern the change in production technology with the topics of electrical drive technology, high-temperature applications and maintenance, repair and overhaul.

Further projects in the fields of mobility and energy are in planning.

Who can join?

If you are a scientific or educational institution, a company or a start-up interested in a research cooperation - in short: the Werner-von-Siemens Centre for Industry & Science sounds exciting to you - then a membership could be just right for you.

Why joining?

Association members benefit from a diverse network of partners. The planned co-location will enable close cooperation, short distances and quick results in the future. The interdisciplinary discourse between research and industry can open new perspectives and initiate joint research projects.

The location in Siemensstadt 2.0, one of the 11 Berlin ”Zukunftsorte”, also offers great potential for cooperation.
