The Hasler Foundation performs its work primarily through the support programmes which it initiates.
Active support programmes
To achieve specific objectives, the Hasler Foundation launches special support programmes where the Foundation itself commissions projects. In the case of active support programmes, not only the projects themselves but associated measures such as PR work are also financed.
Invitations for theme-based projects
Regularly every few years, the Hasler Foundation invites proposals for support programmes on a specific theme. The projects that are put forward are judged according to their relevance to the theme and their scientific quality.
