The Göde-Stiftung is a foundation and was established in 1998 by its eponymous chairman Dr. Michael Göde.
The foundation’s primary task is research in physics, mainly in the field of gravity, also called gravitation, where a team of scientists conducts its own experiments. The foundation also supports external research projects to a certain extent. In the first few years the Göde-Stiftung set itself the task of critically testing experiments in which an influence on gravity was postulated. All testing is performed according to strict scientific standards.
Since 2011, support for educational programs has also been an integral part the Göde-Stiftung’s mission. While the initial focus was on supporting solar projects in Vietnam, the current focus is increasingly on promoting young scientists in Germany.
Solar systems remain a major subject for the foundation. Thanks to the commitment of colleagues from Antaris Solar GmbH and the TEC-Institute for Technical Innovations, part of the electricity necessary for our experiments is generated via solar panels on the roofs of office buildings and carports. Furthermore, all employees have free access to recharging stations for electric vehicles/bicycles. Given all of the environmental issues that pose an ever-increasing challenge for humanity, the employees of the Göde-Stiftung want to set a good example. Thus, various scientists exclusively use either electric vehicles or public transportation to get to work.
The Göde-Stiftung is located in the Bavarian town of Waldaschaff, near Aschaffenburg.
