The Advisory Network of the Schering Stiftung

The Advisory Network consists of former fellows, Project Space artists, and award recipients of the Schering Stiftung.

Launched in April 2019, it aims to offer outstanding international and interdisciplinary scientists and artists a space for professional networking. It thus enables valuable collaborations beyond the actual grant period that strengthen the interdisciplinary aspects and approaches of scientific and artistic work.

We at the Schering Stiftung value our advisors as inspiring interlocutors and important jury members or speakers. They contribute their current research findings from internationally renowned scientific institutions and/or their individual artistic perspectives, and they support us in aligning the program, grants, and awards of the Schering Stiftung with current topics and debates in society, science, and the arts.
