The purpose of the B. Braun-Stiftung is the promotion of learning and education, of science and research and of public healthcare in the field of human medicine. Therefore the B. Braun-Stiftung supports health care researchers and practitioners who conduct projects in a field of public healthcare. The results of this project should be transferable to the German health care system. Since 2008, the B. Braun-Foundation has financed one German scientist to participate in the Harkness Fellowship Program. For the B. Braun-Stiftung it is important that the results of the Harkness fellow’s research will have an impact on the German health care system.

B. Braun-Stiftung is working on establishing a network for German speaking fellows such as yearly meetings and an exclusive networking software for alumni.
