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.
