Created in memory of Kristian Gerhard Jebsen, the KRISTIAN GERHARD JEBSEN FOUNDATION aims to enhance the well-being of people and promote human and social development, through support of grantees in the areas of health, education, science, culture and environment, in Switzerland and aboard.

The foundation recognises that making a difference can take many years to achieve. It is willing to take a long-term view and support innovative approaches.

Please note that the foundation identifies potential grantees through its own research and field work. It does not accept unsolicited funding requests. Thank you for your kind understanding.

A Swiss-registered foundation, it is under federal oversight.

Upcoming event: 24-26 October 2017 EPFL Life Science Symposium on Metabolism and Health supported by the Kristian Gerhard Jebsen Foundation.
