BR50 – a partner for fostering dialogue between science, society and politics

Given its vast array of institutions, Berlin’s non-university research landscape is comprehensive and covers a wide range of topics. A major objective of BR50 is to merge this diversity for the benefit of specific interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary issues and topics.

The intention is to facilitate coordination between non-university research institutions and to provide a central point of contact for cooperation with Berlin’s universities. Like the Berlin University Alliance (BUA) – the association comprising Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin and Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin – BR50 will also provide platform for the participating institutions to engage in dialogue.

Besides offering science a platform for dialogue, BR50 is also a central port of call for engagement with stakeholders in politics and society.
