Annual Report 2011 | Perspectives 2012

Mar. 29, 2012

Also available in Deutsch

Communication via the internet is an important, even essential, approach to helping us fulfil our mission. This has led us to take a new approach to the annual report. Last year, it was published for the first time as one bilingual report (in both English and German). This year the foundation is publishing reports by individual departments only online – the goal is to create a greater synergy through its presence on the internet. That means more room is available in the printed report for “Perspectives 2012” to highlight our focus topics, our expertise and our long-term projects.
