What we do

Our Areas of Support

Daycare and school for the 21st century

What is the impact of digitalization or automation on people, on the way we learn at educational institutions and live together in society? And what will our future workplaces look like? 

People will have to focus on tasks that cannot be automated and that require creativity, social intelligence, reflection, and cooperation. Also, knowledge and skills are required to understand, use, critically view, and apply digital technologies. Learn more

Shaping our life in society

Our founder Robert Bosch was committed to the democratic order and a liberal society of responsible, free citizens. We will only be able to live together well in our diverse and ever-changing society if all people have an equal chance to participate in social life, based on the rule-of-law principle. Solutions to the challenges of our time can only be found through trans-sectoral collaboration at all levels and by including a variety of different perspectives. Learn more

Making health care fit for the future

Since the Robert Bosch Stiftung was founded back in 1964, health care has been one of its core focuses, with the Robert Bosch Hospital inaugurated by Robert Bosch himself in 1940 at its heart. Today, we are working to strengthen the future viability of our health care system, in keeping with our founder’s multidimensional understanding of health. We are committed to health care that is geared to people and their social needs. Learn more

Joint solutions to global challenges

Promoting peace and stability — and thereby alleviating human hardship — was of special concern to Robert Bosch. Through our efforts, we have implemented this legacy in the International Relations programs since the Foundation’s establishment. Learn more

Building bridges between science and society

We are searching for new ways to bridge the gap between science and society in order to find joint solutions for living together in the future. In this process, the participation and the active contribution of all parts of society are pivotal to us.

Society and science are closely interrelated. Science can shape society by generating new knowledge, by educating and qualifying future problem solvers and decision-makers, and by incorporating knowledge from and into society. Considering the great challenges we are facing with regard to climate change, resource scarcity, rapid urbanization and societal cohesion, we foster research in these areas in Germany, Europe and Sub-Sahara Africa.
