The peak of research and healing

As an internationally renowned university hospital, Charité in Berlin has been writing medical and construction history for more than 300 years. Now, one of Berlin’s largest employers is embarking on the path to the future in terms of medicine and urban development with the strategy “Charité 2030”.

Charité is one of the largest university clinics in Europe. It is the joint medical faculty of the Freie Universität Berlin and the Humboldt Universität of Berlin. This is where interdisciplinary teams research, heal and teach at the highest level. Charité is the professional home of several German Nobel Prize winners for Medicine and Physiology, including Emil von Behring, Robert Koch and Paul Ehrlich. With a total of four campuses, the university hospital is regarded worldwide as an excellent training center. For more than 300 years, it has also been setting new standards in urban planning.

Charité is now rethinking all of this – both in terms of content and architecture. The “Charité 2030” strategy forms the basis for further development of the buildings. Each of the campuses is receiving an individual profile and remains the optimum provider. Excellent content-related fields of development are intertwined with new architectural structures. What is planned in terms of urban planning and architecture can be found here:
