Klaus Tschira Foundation

In 1995, Klaus Tschira, physicist and co-founder of the software company SAP, founded the Klaus Tschira Stiftung (KTS). With the intention to place strong emphasis on natural sciences in the society, the commitment of the KTS ranges from kindergarten to schools, universities and research institutions all over Germany. The support is differentiated in three main fields: natural sciences for children and young people, research and science communication. The foundation is located at the Villa Bosch in Heidelberg, the former residence of Nobel Prize laureate for chemistry Carl Bosch.

Dietmar Hopp Foundation

Dietmar Hopp founded his foundation in 1995 to enable the implementation of charitable projects. His foundation encourages projects in the area sports, medicine, social support and education. Thus the Hopp foundation supports medical research projects on the highest level including cancer research and pediatrics. In the area of education the foundation facilitates institutions and projects for young people- from kindergarten to university. The Hopp foundation also supports our project and our team of young scientists!

Helmholtz-Initiative Synthetic Biology

The Helmholtz Association is Germany’s largest scientific organization. The Association brings together 18 scientific-technical and biological-medical research centres and follows the tradition of the great natural scientist Hermann von Helmholtz (1821-1894). The Helmholtz Association is dedicated to pursuing the long-term research goals of state and society, and to maintaining and improving the livelihoods of the population. In order to do this, the Helmholtz Association carries out top-level research to identify and explore the major challenges facing society, science and the economy. Its work is divided into six strategic research fields: Energy; Earth and Environment; Health; Key Technologies; Structure of Matter; and Aeronautics, Space and Transport. The Helmholtz Initiative on Synthetic Biology has been supporting the emerging field of synthetic biology since September 2012.

Heidelberg University

Heidelberg University, founded in 1386, is Germany’s oldest university and one of the strongest research institutions in Europe. The successes in both rounds of the Excellence Initiative and in international rankings prove its leading role in the scientific community. Heidelberg University is a comprehensive university with the full spectrum of subjects including medicine. It aims to strengthen the individual disciplines, to further interdisciplinary cooperation and to make research results usable for society and industry. Heidelberg also draws its strength from its cooperation with local non-university research institutions and is tied into a worldwide network of research and teaching collaborations.

The BioQuant, the Center for “Quantitative Analysis of Molecular and Cellular Biosystems” at Heidelberg University was established in 2007 as an interdisciplinary University research center that is solely dedicated to research and training in systems biology. BioQuants’s objective is to function as a platform for the development and constant refinement of mathematical models of complex biological systems as well as the swift validation of scientific hypotheses via experimental data. Currently, up to 40 University and non-University research groups (DKFZ, EMBL, the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS, formerly the European Media Lab), and the MPI for Medical Research) are affiliated with BioQuant. These research groups are instrumental in implementing numerous national and international systems biology funding initiatives.
