Foundations within the Foundation


DVA-Stiftung promotes the intensification of German-French dialog in the humanities and social sciences, as well as in literature and theater. This focus stems back to Robert Bosch, who strove to achieve reconciliation and friendship between Germany and France in the wake of the experiences of the First World War. DVA-Stiftung was founded in 1980 on the basis of funds provided by Robert Bosch GmbH in Stuttgart. It became a dependent foundation within the Robert Bosch Stiftung in 2007.

The work of DVA-Stiftung focuses on two areas of support: fostering translation on the one hand and academic dialog on the other. It offers support in the form of carefully selected cooperation projects which are publicly tendered. Other than that, the foundation does not grant any individual scholarships, printing cost subsidies, or translators’ fees.
