»There’s much I know: yet I’d know everything.«

Our craving for knowledge continually presents us with new challenges. Sometimes, in order to make headway, one needs assistance. The Helmut Fischer Foundation therefore sponsors scientific works in the MINT disciplines, especially the areas of physics, chemistry, electrical engineering and medical technology. The Foundation awards grants for developing innovative measuring methods and supports programs for ensuring and improving quality knowledge.

Endowed Professorships
The Helmut Fischer Foundation, in collaboration with twelve other partners and the Technologiestiftung Berlin, initiated and supported the chair of "Analytical X-ray Physics" at the Technical University of Berlin. In 2009, the German physicist Prof. Dr. Birgit Kanngießer was appointed to this endowed professorship. The innovative foundation model continued until the year 2021.

Doctoral Fellowships
Changing perspectives, turning ideas into reality: sponsoring the development of next-generation scientists, the Helmut Fischer Foundation has granted several doctoral fellowships based at several different institutions.

Study Grants
Discovering and fostering talent: The Helmut Fischer Foundation has taken on the challenge of sponsoring and mentoring gifted students who are still in the early stages of their careers. The Foundation works with a variety of institutions across Germany, sponsoring interested young scientists at both the Bachelor's and the Master's levels.
