Purpose


Purpose of the Foundation is the promotion of free and independent scientific research as a counterbalance to research dominated by the interests of politics and industry. Funds will preferentially be provided to non-profit organisations, universities and other research institutes in Europe that own the capacity to carry out high-ranking research projects.


The aims of the Foundation will be achieved by

supporting research projects that, free from economic interests, deal with issues relevant for the health of the people

establishing a network of scientists and independent research organisations that meet the requirements necessary for a gain in knowledge

procuring funds pursuant to § 58 No. 1 of the German Tax Code to promote these aims.
