In 1964, the Bosch family's inherited shares in the company Robert Bosch GmbH were transferred to an estate - Vermögensverwaltung Bosch GmbH - that Robert Bosch had founded back in 1921. This was subsequently renamed Robert Bosch Stiftung GmbH (Robert Bosch Foundation) in 1969.

IRD Activities

  • Dialogue to promote cooperation. The Robert Bosch Foundation promotes culture and religion solely in the thematic context of international relations, education, and society. One of the programs focused on a platform for conference participants to ask questions to members of Christian congregations and church leaders in Izmir about their cooperation with other religious groups in Izmir as well as about their everyday life in a Muslim country. Church leaders spoke about challenges and positive aspects of interreligious dialogue and life as a non-Muslim in a Muslim country. Further projects include improving interreligious and intercultural skills of German theology students of Turkish descent, workshops on topics such as networking and interreligious dialogue for Muslim volunteers, and a project involving 10 young people who were able to explore five different faith communities with the intention of promoting interreligious dialogue and mutual understanding.

  • Islamic communities as community actors

    Islamic pastoral care in the hospital or Muslim youth work in the city - Muslims use their skills to build up important offers locally. Islamic communities usually advise their members far beyond religious aspects: They help with dealing with authorities and with children's school issues. In order to support them in their tasks, the Goethe-Institut in cooperation with the Robert Bosch Foundation offers advanced training for around 100 committed members of Islamic communities.
