Our responsibility towards knowledge
- Logo of EADS Corporate Foundation.
With EADS' position come responsibilities. These extend beyond its role as a business and are defined by its commitment to furthering knowledge, sciences and research.
Our decision to create the EADS Corporate Foundation in 2004 honors that commitment through its five main objectives:
- Forge ties between public sector research communities and industrial communities
- Contribute to the development of scientific and technological research
- Contribute to the development of scientific knowledge
- Bolster the economic world's societal and ethical commitment
- Contribute to the discovery of general interest applications for innovations in aeronautic and space technology
The Foundation’s core activities concentrate on funding pioneering and original research projects, helping foundations and associations that share our common values for the progression of science and setting up initiatives to raise awareness among the younger generations in the fields of science.
