The promotional format “Ladenburg Roundtables” comprises one- to two-day events on the Foundation’s premises. The topics are normally suggested to the Foundation by scientists; if a topic is approved, the initiators can then select participants and act as scientific managers. The Executive Board and the management of the Foundation can likewise suggest topics and identify suitable scientists and personalities from the spheres of industry, administration, and associations as participants. The outcome of a Ladenburg Roundtable is open; it can be concluded with a meeting or lead to further meetings. A Roundtable frequently gives rise to a publication or leads to project applications with other promotion institutions. The Foundation takes care of the organization of the meetings and covers the participants’ travel and accommodation costs.
