Advanced UV for Life

Advanced UV for Life is a consortium of academic institutions and industrial companies operating in development and application of UV LEDs. It aims at pushing the technological development, the availability and the use of UV LEDs.

Main issues are

  • replacement of currently dominant mercury vapor lamps by UV LEDs
  • development of novel applications of UV LEDs

Activities of the consortium cover the whole value chain: from material through UV LEDs and UV photodiodes, modules and systems with tailored properties to the final application, such as UV LED based components, systems and processes. The cooperation between component developers and end users of UV radiation will open up new markets and aims at innovative products in the application fields medicine, environment & life sciences, disinfection and production.

Advanced UV for Life is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research within the program "Twenty20 - Partnership for Innovation".

Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises

The core task of the Berlin Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Business with its 340 employees is to create the right framework conditions for the economy so that existing Berlin companies can grow in the global competition and so that new companies can choose Berlin as their location. Securing and creating jobs is the top priority. In its successful course, the Senate Department is relying on the capital's proven strengths:

  • attractive commercial and industrial locations,
  • a large pool of qualified and motivated specialists
  • as well as an impressive creative variety with a high quality of life.

The Joint Innovation Strategy of the Länder Berlin and Brandenburg-innoBB adopted on 21 June 2011 forms the binding guideline for innovation policy action in both countries. With innoBB, Berlin and Brandenburg are pursuing a concept of "intelligent specialisation" and focusing on the targeted establishment and expansion of clusters with high development potential.

The joint future fields identified in 2007, such as optics and photonics, were thus developed into transnational clusters in the course of a growth- and competition-oriented strategy, the development process of which is to be continued systematically and in a qualified manner in the future.
