The Stifterverband‘s anniversary initiative “Wirkung hoch 100” (Impact to the power of 100) is entering its third and final funding phase, and we are part of it. Ten of the more than 500 projects originally applying have been selected in a multi-stage process since the fall of 2020 in search of the best ideas for the education, science and innovation system of the future. They will now receive a total of one million euros in funding. The ten finalists will present their proposed solutions to challenges in science, education and innovation to all interested parties in November 2021, in order to make them more visible and even more effective through networking with other stakeholders. We very much look forward to the upcoming further collaboration with the other wonderful initiatives.
