Mainz, October 17, 2014.- SCHOTT AG in Mainz played host to 80 of the Carl Zeiss Foundation’s scholarship recipients from universities in Rhineland-Palatinate, Baden-Württemberg and Thuringia for the past two days. The young researchers learned more about research and development, production technologies and the specialty glass manufacturer’s product portfolio by going on a tour of the melting lab and the production sites for CERAN® glass-ceramic cooktop panels and special glass tubing for pharmaceutical ampoules and vials, but also at various events. The scholarship recipients also took the opportunity to learn more about career opportunities at SCHOTT and its sister company ZEISS. Furthermore, they presented their own research projects at a poster exhibition.

SCHOTT AG in Mainz and Carl Zeiss AG in Oberkochen both pay dividends to their sole shareholder, the Carl Zeiss Foundation, from their profits. The foundation supports graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, junior and foundation professorships, and projects aimed at strengthening research structures in the fields of science and engineering at universities in Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate and Thuringia, i.e. in the federal states where the foundation and the foundation companies are based. Since 2007, the foundation has provided 80 million euros for the various support programs. This includes a special package of 12 million euros for the promotion of young researchers that the foundation provided this year on the occasion of its 125th anniversary.

“The funds from the Carl Zeiss Foundation are invested wisely in you because money spent to train highly qualified young people is an investment in the future,” Dr. Frank Heinricht, Chairman of the Board of Management of SCHOTT AG, told the scholarship recipients.
