On 02 July 2021, the foundation stone was laid for the "Berlin Center for Advanced Therapies" (BeCAT) at Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin. At BeCAT, teams from Charité will develop next-generation drugs in the future. The aim is to use cell-based therapies to specifically restore the health of patients with previously incurable diseases. Among the guests was Mr Michael Müller, the governing mayor of Berlin, science senator and chairman of the supervisory board of Charité. DERU is planning the GMP clean rooms and the technical building equipment for the new building with a usable area of approx. 1,300 m², from preliminary planning to site supervision. A GMP qualification process will also be implemented. The costs for the plant groups are estimated at approx. 16 million EUR plus VAT. Completion is planned for 2023.
Excavation work for the new research building "Regensburg Center for Ultrafast Nanoscopy" (RUN) started at the beginning of 2021. DERU is planning the technical facilities (excluding electrical engineering) for the new building. In the RUN, about 100 scientists and technicians from more than twenty research groups will collaborate on the development of new nanoscopy techniques in the future. The nanoscopy, preparation and technical rooms will receive high-quality ventilation systems as well as an access airlock to keep the work areas as particle-free as possible. The precision laboratory area will be built completely as a second basement in a separate structure with a ceiling height of over six meters. Completion is scheduled for 2023.
The future location for the Center Nanoelectronic Technologies (CNT) of the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (IPMS) is currently being built in a former digital paper factory in Dresden. The CNT researches neuromorphic computer technology and hardware for artificial intelligence (AI). First, 3,000 m² of the former Plastic Logic clean room will be upgraded.
DERU is responsible for the reconstruction engineering of the clean room and the technical building equipment. DERU is also planning the hook up for the research equipment.
