AUDI AG supports endowed professorships at German universities, which can be considered an important contribution by the company to the development of universities in Germany and thus for society as a whole.
An endowed professorship is a professorship that is not, or is not exclusively, funded from the basic budget of a university, but instead is partially or fully financed by a third-party donor. The duration of these professorships is usually limited, such as for a five-year period. Afterwards, the expenses are borne by the university.
