Sociology of Science

Friedrich Schiedel Foundation

The entrepreneur and senator Friedrich Schiedel, who died in 2001, has decreed that after his death the majority of his assets shall be transferred to the Friedrich Schiedel Foundation, which is a foundation under public law based in Munich.

Since its establishment in 1986, the Friedrich Schiedel Foundation has invested a total amount in the two digit million euro range to support social and scientific purposes.

In 2012 the Friedrich Schiedel Chair of Sociology of Science was established at the Technical University of Munich with a ten-year grant from the Friedrich Schiedel Foundation.
