Projects supported by Volkswagen Foundation

By means of the “Experiment!“ funding initiative announced for the first time in 2013, Volkswagen Foundation supports new research concepts with uncertain outcome – with an overwhelming response: After having received 704 applications during the first call, of which 13 were approved, 630 applications also showed a high demand for the second call.  

Thanks to the Foundation’s financial support, 19 projects are now able to pursue their innovative research ideas. Dr. Ulrike Bischler, program director at Volkswagen Foundation, explains possible ways on how to receive funding.
