For Porsche AG the company's extensive educational support for children, teenagers and students is aimed not only at getting them interested in subjects such as mathematics, engineering, science and technology, but also has the objective of helping socially underprivileged young people and giving them equal opportunities.
In the field of education and science Porsche AG is therefore planning to significantly expand its cooperations with universities, for the purpose of acquiring well-qualified new personnel for the future and to obtain practical research findings and experience for its own product developments. A significant part of the company's support for universities takes the form of grants which Porsche AG has been distributing to more than ten selected universities throughout Germany since 2012. In addition, on 9 July 2013 the "Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG Chair of Strategic Management and Family Businesses" („Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG Stiftungslehrstuhl für Strategisches Management und Familienunternehmen“) was founded at the HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management.
