Fostering talent - shaping the future

Education policy in general and university policy in particular are moving steadily into the public's line of focus. Our economy and country's capacity for innovation hinges substantially on know-how and education. So investments in research and science pay off all round: not only for companies but also for individuals. In view of the challenges top-ranking universities like ours will have to face up to in the future, your support is particularly important.
