Governance of the Foundation

The governance of the foundation are the Board of Executive Directors, the Board of Trustees and the Advisory Board. They assemble expertise from politics, science, business, and civil society.

While the Board of Executive Directors is responsible for the operative affairs of the foundation, the Board of Trustees directs the foundation’s policy and decides on the use and investment of the foundation’s funds. The Advisory Board has an advisory function and provides a variety of impulses for the work of the foundation. The Board of Trustees works closely with the Advisory Board. Once every year, the two bodies have a joint meeting.
