What would City West be without its educational and research institutions? Certainly an attractive place for retail and relaxation. But the central location of the universities and research facilities gives the area international stature with interesting options for interweaving science and the economy.
"Campus Charlottenburg has been here for a while already. The local participants want to move even closer and communicate their collective interests to the public," explained the presidents of the Berlin Technical University, Prof. Dr. Jörg Steinbach and Prof. Martin Rennert of the Berlin University of Arts at a press conference in Amerika Haus in January 2011. The formation of Campus Charlottenburg, an association involving the Technical University, the University of Arts and the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf District, established the basis for cooperation. The goals are the long-term oriented development of the area and the establishment of the brand "Campus Charlottenburg" with international resonance through a joint signet. Other locally based research and education institutions should be added. Preparations are already being made. These include, for example, the master plan for the Campus and the results of the NAVI BC project Sustainable Vitalization of the Berlin-Charlottenburg Campus.
"Improving the universities' cooperation among each other and with the surrounding research institutions is one matter. For this, there are numerous options that have already been used and will be further exhausted. For the profiling of the location, however, the opening of urgently necessary space potential and the adjustment of the post-war architecture around Ernst Reuter Square to today's user needs is on the agenda", said Regional Manager Dirk Spender. Property owners and local educational institutions have a direct interest in promoting innovation at the location and thus ensuring its sustainability.
In November 2011, the Regional Management, together with Campus Charlottenburg, held the first conference on the area under the title of "The Future of Ernst Reuter Square". The conference provided information about the visions, goals and planned steps for the Campus and its surroundings. The conference was the start of a series of other measures that continued in 2012.
