THE INNOVATION AWARD FOR TRAILBLAZERS
AT THE CHARITÉ
PROMOTING INNOVATION, SHAPING THE FUTURE
Stiftung Charité is an independent charitable foundation. It was endowed in 2005 by entrepreneur Johanna Quandt, who entrusted it with the mission of supporting the innovative potential and excellence of Berlin’s university medicine, which can look back on a rich tradition in medical research and patient care. Thereby, the foundation is active in two focal areas: promoting technology transfer between the laboratory and the clinic as well as improving the framework conditions for innovation and entrepreneurship in medicine. Since 2014, Stiftung Charité is also funding the life sciences in Berlin by its Private Excellence Initiative Johanna Quandt.
