For the first time, Eurice has been honoured with the quality seal “Innovativ durch Forschung“ (“Innovation through Research”) by the Donors' association for the promotion of Humanities and Sciences in Germany (Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft). The seal is annually given to organisations to recognize their outstanding commitment to research and innovation.
Since 1920, Stifterverband has embodied the joint responsibility of German companies for a society that is viable for the future while also being conducive with a high quality of life. It comprises large and mid-sized companies, company associations, donors and active private individuals and focuses its efforts primarily on the fields of education, science and innovation. On the science front, Stifterverband provides impetus as a strategic partner to research institutions and higher education institutes and promotes cooperation and interaction between business, science and civil society. Moreover, the association is one of the most important promoters of the foundation sector in Germany.
