In May 2017, the Peace Research Institute Frankfurt (PRIF) opened an office on the premises of the Leibniz Association in Berlin. With the new office the institute pursues three objectives:
- Increasing the visibility of PRIF as an scientific institution near the pulse of German politics through cultivation of contacts and organization of events to enable a critical monitoring and constructive consultation of political decision-making processes.
- The creation of a PRIF location in Berlin – with the possibility for PRIF employees to use the centrally located workplaces during business trips to the capital and to organize workshops in Berlin.
- Fostering PRIF's integration into the Leibniz Association as well as the cooperation with other research institutions in Berlin.
The Berlin Office is located in the headquarters of the Leibniz Association. It is situated on the 5th floor, accessible through the Atrium with elevator C.
The U-Bahn station Naturkundemuseum (U6 or tram/cable car M5, M8, M10) is in close proximity to the office and the S-Bahn station Nordbahnhof (S1, S2, S25) is within a 400 m walking distance. From the central station take tram/cable car M5 (in the direction of "Zingster Straße"), M8 ("Ahrensfelde/Stadtgrenze") or M10 ("S+U Warschauer Straße") and exit at the second stop "Naturkundemuseum" (travel time 5 min).
