What we do

Our areas of support

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. We are committed to health care that is geared to people and their social needs. Learn more

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.

Joint solutions to global challenges

In our “Global Issues” support area, we are committed to achieving peaceful coexistence worldwide. To this end, we are addressing the core social challenges of our time. Learn more

We support Ukrainian civil society in contributing sustainably to the reconstruction of their country.

In response to Russia's large-scale war of aggression, we made the ad hoc decision to support Ukraine in 2022. Over the next few years, we will consolidate our engagement for Ukraine, focusing on the long-term strengthening of Ukrainian civil society and its role in the reconstruction of the country.

Open dialogue with think tanks, political decision-makers, scientists and opinion leaders

In an increasingly interconnected and complex world, political decisions and societal debates will have to include global perspectives and best practices. Knowledge of cutting-edge research and innovative solutions to societal challenges will prove essential in this process. The Foundation therefore supports the development of evidence-based policy recommendations and solutions. To that end, it facilitates open dialogues involving decision-makers, opinion leaders and international experts from different fields.
