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.
The GÖDE-Stiftung is located in the Bavarian town of Waldaschaff, near Aschaffenburg.
