Jacobs Foundation

Ever since the Jacobs Foundation was founded, research funding has constituted the core element of its strategy. To be able to effectively and sustainably support children and young people, we must know and understand how they develop.

Our aim is to identify and support the most innovative globally leading researchers in the field of child and youth development in order to promote the scientific advancement. With our funding instruments we address all academic disciplines that contribute to a better understanding and the improvement of child and youth development including psychology, education and economic sciences, sociology, family studies, media studies, political science, linguistics, neurosciences, biology and (epi-) genetics and medicine.

We are convinced that research plays a key role in the development, evaluation, refinement and dissemination of interventions, programs, and policies for children and youth. Newer types of scientific intervention research rigorously identify those factors which are able to bridge the “research-to-practice” gap, making it possible to maximize the effectiveness of interventions, programs and strategies as soon as these are transferred into real-world settings.
