Strategic management

Prof. Dr. Rudolf Marty
Rudolf Marty succeeded founding chairman Theodor Fässler on 1 January 2005. He bears responsibility for the strategic direction of Gebert Rüf Stiftung.

Impact under scrutiny

In his work for the Foundation, Rudolf Marty does not consider himself a representative of one university or region nor as defending the interests of a particular discipline. Rather, he pursues the mission of Gebert Rüf Stiftung, not to finance basic research as a sort of miniature National Fund, but to implement science with a focus on effectiveness and practical application through a grant-making strategy based on defined focal points.
