Foundation

The liberal spirit of Hamburg and Gerd Bucerius’ unflagging willingness to embrace the new - it is these two sources of inspiration that define the ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius. Its activities are centred on research and scholarship, art and culture as well as education and training.

The flagship of the Foundation is the Bucerius Law School, founded in 2000 as the only private university for law studies in Germany, and already a strong innovative force in its academic discipline. The establishment of the Bucerius Kunst Forum in the heart of Hamburg underlines the importance of the Foundation in the arts. For the Bucerius Summer School on Global Governance, the ZEIT-Stiftung brings together young leaders from a variety of fields to address key issues in global governance.

Intercultural dialogue is at the centre of the Foundation’s international activities spanning above all Central and Eastern Europe, the United States, and Israel. For more information please consult the website of the ZEIT-Stiftung.
