Dialogue in the Museum

In cooperation with the Daimler AG, this lecture series takes place in the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart. Several times a year, the Foundation asks one of the scientists it is sponsoring to be the speaker at Dialogue in the Museum. The lecture series concentrates on topics with economic or societal implications.

Daimler and Benz Foundation

Openness and curiosity are essential prerequisites for discovery. In order to intensify the knowledge-generation process, the Daimler and Benz Foundation works with targeted stimuli. Using its €3 million yearly operating budget, the Foundation is able to provide sizable resources for international research. Its endowment of €125 million makes the Daimler and Benz Foundation one of the largest, actively-operating foundations in Germany.

The Daimler and Benz Foundation is guided by clear principles. Its core values include supporting young researchers, encouraging interdisciplinary cooperation, and promoting research in a wide-range of fields. The Daimler and Benz Foundation has created a forum where leaders in the natural and social sciences can present and discuss their ideas. This exchange brings unconventional associations and new ideas to light: The result is knowledge with long-term benefits for us all.
