"The ideas of today may be the reality of tomorrow"

Dr. Heinrich Dräger


Welcome at the Dräger Foundation

The way our world will look in the future is something that will not be determined tomorrow, but today. We have to ask ourselves today how we face up to the key social and economic challenges of our time. Following this philosophy of Heinrich Dräger, the Dräger Foundation believes its job is to bring people together to jointly develop ideas for the future within the framework of an international and interdisciplinary exchange.
