Funding guidelines

Under which conditions is a funding possible?


In its statute dated 11 February 1999, amended on 6 May 2008, the non-profit CLAAS Foundation determines the Foundation’s purpose as the promotion of science and research as well as education, especially in the area of agriculture and related engineering and economic sciences.

The CLAAS Foundation is both operative as well as promotional.  As an operative Foundation we pursue the Foundation’s objectives by introducing own initiatives such as awarding scholarships and science prizes, organizing own events etc. As a promotional Foundation we enable third parties to work on and realize interesting research approaches, ideas and projects.

The CLAAS Foundation’s funding activities have to be selected abiding by the CLAAS Foundation’s Statue, as well as the applicable laws and regulations in Germany, in particular the Foundation Act of North-Rhine Westphalia and the requirements of the Foundation supervisory authority.

In the project selection process, the CLAAS Foundation places great importance on the fulfillment of the Statue’s standards which are further specified in the following content and strategic eligibility criteria.
