Our Vision

With pioneering research into a sustainable future
The UniBE Foundation supports excellence, innovation and future potential at the University of Bern so that current and future generations of researchers can develop globally pioneering solutions to the complex challenges of our time.

Promote talents

Where young talents put their heads together and give free rein to their curiosity and thirst for knowledge, creative solutions for the complex problems of our time emerge. We need to create the conditions for success and provide targeted support for a new generation of researchers.

Economy of the future

We need new, sustainable economic and social models in order to master the major challenges of our time. Interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research has a key role to play here.

Sustainable habitats

A world worth living in needs trend-setting research that initiates transformation processes in a creative, highly networked and pragmatic way and shows how habitats can be designed sustainably for humans, animals and the environment. 

Ethical standard of living

Demographic changes present us with major social and medical challenges. Multidisciplinary teams at the pulse of time use engineering know-how and medical expertise to develop innovative healthcare solutions for the needs of all population groups.

Strategy 2030 - Knowledge creates value.

At the centre of the University of Bern's Strategy 2030 are the self-image and values that unite the University as a comprehensive university in all its diversity. The University of Bern sees itself as a forward-looking, top international university with local roots and social relevance.
