Founded on the tenets of scientific independence and the inquisitive nature of the human mind, the Ernst Strüngmann Forum facilitates the expansion of knowledge by providing an open environment for researchers to scrutinize high-priority problems from multiple vantage points. The overall goal is not necessarily to achieve consensus but to identify gaps in current knowledge. Once established, ways of addressing these gaps are identified to assist future research.
Funding is provided by the Dr. Ernst Strüngmann Foundation, established by Drs. Andreas and Thomas Strüngmann in honor of their father.
