The Robert Bosch Stiftung Opens a New Representative Office in Berlin-Mitte

Berlin, July 3, 2012 - The Robert Bosch Stiftung opened its new office in Berlin’s city center at Französische Strasse 32 yesterday. Around 200 guests attended the opening ceremony, the slogan of which was "We are coming to your center." Maestro Daniel Barenboim, musical director of the State Opera House on Unter den Linden in Berlin and founder of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, gave the opening address. Anne-Marie Slaughter, professor at Princeton University, held a guest lecture entitled "Do It Youself Foreign Policy: Public-Private Partnerships in the 21st Century."

In the future, most of the Robert Bosch Stiftung’s events in Berlin will be held at the new location. In addition, the building also houses the offices of the Stiftung’s Berlin-based employees. Furthermore, the Richard von Weizsäcker Fellows will also have their headquarters here. This multilateral and interdisciplinary program invites renowned experts to visit Germany for stays lasting anywhere from two to twelve months. The new office in Berlin-Mitte means that the Stiftung now has excellent access to the capital city’s decision-makers and institutions.

Chairman of the Management Board, Dieter Berg, stated, "Our new office in the capital city will become a place for people to come together. It will be a showcase for the topics and regions that are the focus of our work. We have held more than 300 events in Berlin in the past year alone."

Up until now, the Robert Bosch Stiftung has used an office in Bosch’s building located in the Charlottenburg district of Berlin. Robert Bosch GmbH will continue to use this traditional Bosch location.
