Steeped in tradition, cultivating the future

In memory of Senator Dr. Adolf Messer, who would have turned 100 on April 6, 1978, the Messer family established the Adolf Messer Foundation in 1978.

The foundation supports the research and teaching of scientists who have drawn attention to themselves through outstanding achievements. For this purpose, the Adolf Messer Foundation awards two prizes per year, amongst others.

In this way, the foundation honors innovative strength, scientific curiosity and pioneering spirit – strengths which characterized Adolf Messer himself.
