Background: The new funding strategy
In the early months of 2021, the Volkswagen Foundation began implementing a realignment of its funding strategy. Central to this strategy are the three profile areas "Exploration", "Social Transformations" and "Understanding Research – Evaluation and Science Practice". In the contexts of all three areas, funding initiatives are newly created or further developed in an ongoing process. For more information on the strategy and the funding guidelines, see "The Volkswagen Foundations new funding strategy".
