The Leister Foundation is committed to upholding its objectives of supporting art, culture, education, and knowledge.
We are very proud of the fact that it is based in Central Switzerland. For this reason, we generally prioritize projects that promote the customs and traditions surrounding the art and culture in this area.
We are also heavily involved in promoting education and knowledge. We continue to place great emphasis on developing the technical education of today’s young people. To this end, we have established successful cooperations with various organizations and institutes such as the Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology in both Zurich (ETHZ) and Lausanne (EPFL), Technorama, the Swiss Association of Women Engineers (svin), and Na-tec.
