Overview

Founded in 1926 by Paul Daimler, Carl Benz and Emil Jellinek-Mercedes, Mercedes-Benz is a german car, bus and truck manufacturer. The group was born thanks to the merger of two companies which names are : Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft and Mercedes et Benz.

In 2018, we spent approximately €66 million on donations to non-profit institutions and the sponsorship of socially beneficial projects. The Daimler and Benz Foundation supports interdisciplinary scientific dialog and research projects. The purpose of the foundation is to examine and clarify the interrelationships between humans, the environment and technology. The foundation offers scholarships to outstanding young scientists, and it also designs and implements innovative research formats and organizes lecture series.

Our STEM educational initiative, “Genius”, offers many activities that get children and young people enthusiastic about technology topics. Genius also helps teachers make their classes varied and future-oriented by offering them practice-related instructional materials, interactive technology workshops and advanced training courses. The Daimler and Benz Foundation provides support for socially-relevant, interdisciplinary research projects. The selection process reflects the Foundation's desire to concentrate on specific areas that they believe will produce results with far-reaching consequences for the future.Using its €3 million yearly operating budget, the Foundation is able to provide sizable resources for international research. Its endowment of €125 million makes the Daimler and Benz Foundation one of the largest, actively-operating foundations in Germany.
