Since 2012 IRIS Adlershof has the IRIS building „Zum Großen Windkanal 6" as a resource, which is in the immediate area of the Humboldt-Universität's Departments of Physics and Chemistry, as well as numerous other innovative institutes and companies in Adlershof’s science and technology park.
Adjacent to this, an IRIS research building is under construction since 2016, which will have approx. 4,500 square meters of highly modern laboratories, offices, and communication areas and therefore optimal conditions for researching and developing hybrid systems in electronics, optoelectronics, and photonics. The building is expected to be ready for move in by mid-2020.
The research building comission is responsible for all matters concerning the research building and its construction. It comprises Prof. Kannan Balasubramanian, Prof. Oliver Benson, Prof. Claudia Draxl, Prof. Stefan Hecht, Prof. Norbert Koch, Prof. Christoph T. Koch (deputy chairperson) and Prof. Emil List-Kratochvil (chairperson).
