The Foundation strives to establish a wide range of funding and create synergistic effects through close contact with practically oriented scientific institutions in Germany. For example, it has supported the Aspen Institute, the German Society for Foreign Affairs, and the European Confederation of Political Science Associations (ECPSA).

In addition, the foundation has provided the University of Duisburg-Essen with data sets (drawn from the Annotated Bibliography of Political Science) as part of the PolMine project. The aim is to process and transpose text data into a digital language resource.
