Nobel Prize Dialogue Partnership with
Nationale Akademie der Wissenschaften Leopoldina
The Leopoldina originated in 1652 as a classical scholarly society and now has 1,600 members from almost all branches of science. In 2008, the Leopoldina was appointed as the German National Academy of Sciences and, in this capacity, was invested with two major objectives: representing the German scientific community internationally, and providing policymakers and the public with science-based advice.
The Federal Ministry of Education and Research
Our world is in flux. Digitalization, climate change and human health are presenting us with more and more challenges. In order to solve them, we need education and research. Both of these fields are priorities for the Federal Government. As such, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research pays attention to the needs of everyone, whether they are children or adolescents, trainees or students, skilled workers or internationally renowned scientists. It is our conviction that research and innovation are crucial for ensuring human well-being.
Robert Bosch Stiftung
The Robert Bosch Stiftung GmbH is one of the major German foundations associated with a private company and has managed the philanthropic bequest of company founder Robert Bosch for over 50 years. Indeed it was his entrepreneurial vision, political farsightedness, moral fortitude and charitable initiatives that set the standards for the work of the Robert Bosch Stiftung.
The Volkswagen Foundation is an independent foundation incorporated under private law with registered office in Hanover. Its overall funding volume of around 150 million euros per year makes it Germany‘s largest private research funding foundation, and indeed one of the country’s largest foundations altogether. The Foundation provides funds only to academic institutions. Since 1962, the Volkswagen Foundation has allocated more than 5.1 billion euros in support of over 33,000 projects. It is thereby one of the largest common benefit foundations under private law in all of Germany.
