Driving force for education and science

In accordance with its article of association, the Adolf Messer Foundation mainly supports education and science. This takes place through the sponsorship of scientific projects, i.e. by means of one-off or continuing grants for the education of persons worthy of the sponsorship. Scientific and educational facilities – mainly in Germany – also receive support for education and professional training.
On top of this, the Adolf Messer Foundation gives out two sponsorship prizes per year.

In the period between 1994 and 2004 alone, approximately 4.4 million euros were provided by the foundation.

This task is becoming increasingly significant, as it is often impossible for the government to provide sufficient funds for such activities.
