The University of Strasbourg is a research and teaching powerhouse, with an impressive track record of achievement in addressing the world's major challenges. From facilitating innovative teaching, to enabling capital projects, to assisting research projects, support can benefit those at the University but also produce outcomes which will help people around the world.
The University of Strasbourg Foundation aims to support and promote the activities of the University, Strasbourg's university hospital and their partners. It contributes to furthering their autonomy, attractiveness, accessibility and creativity as well as to their influence in the socio-economic world. Raising fundings is the Foundation's main activity, in collaboration with the Foundation for Research in Chemistry. It focuses on four areas of development:
- developping excellence in research and education
- increasing interdisciplinarity
- furthering the university's openness
- preserving the university's historic and scientific heritage
The 2010-2014 fundraising campaign was the most successful campaign ever lead by a French university: it managed to raise 22,5 million euros, with an initial target of 20 million. This success was heavily dependant on the significant mobilisation of businesses, private individuals and the alumni community.
A range of projects have been funded since 2010:
- Research programmes
- Training programmes and facilities
- Facilities and support for students with disabilities
- Protection and renovation of heritage buildings and collections
We are proud to attract the brightest minds among staff and students alike. However, challenging times lie ahead and the philanthropic support of our alumni and friends plays a vital role in maintaining our position as a top-ranked European university. Donations further the University of Strasbourg as a centre of excellence by supporting areas of strategic importance. With your help we can continue to attract leading minds to work with us, provide financial support for the students who need it and sustain the world-class research for which we are renowned.
