Rudolf Geigy Foundation

The R. Geigy Foundation was established by the first director of the Swiss Tropical Institute (STI), Prof. Rudolf Geigy.


The aim of the Foundation is to support priority activities of the Swiss TPH, in the field of research and training and to provide specific core support when required.


One of the primary aims of the original foundation was to support young scientists doing field work and to help scientists to publish their results.


Grants are also made for the acquisition of special pieces of equipment and can include core support, such as investments in parts of Swiss TPH buildings that belong to the Foundation.
