  • Welcome Center Potsdam

We welcome you as an international scientist to the city's higher education institutions and non-university research institutions!

As a central support and service center for mobile international researchers, we provide support for the planning and execution of your stay in Potsdam and / or Berlin.

The Welcome Center Potsdam has two offices: one at the University of Potsdam and one at the Telegrafenberg, where we provide advice and support to researchers at the Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Center for Polar and Marine Research (AWI), and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK).

We offer comprehensive information, advice and support before your arrival in Potsdam. Once you arrive in Potsdam / Berlin, we assist you in all questions regarding your stay in the city. We also provide support for you when you depart.
