The manufacturer of testing machines, Ulm ZwickRoell, supports the Albert Einstein Discovery Center Ulm eV with EUR 50,000. Thanks to a generous amount, the company from Ulm Einsingen is now one of the “top 11”. This puts him in an exclusive circle of sponsors who want to contribute to an appropriate appreciation of Einstein’s work in the city where he was born. As the seventh principal donor to support the Albert Einstein Discovery Center project, ZwickRoell will be immortalized in the entrance area of ​​the planned adventure center.

“The vision of designing the Albert Einstein Discovery Center in Ulm, the birthplace of this great man and physicist, and making it a reality, impressed us and inspired us as a company from the very beginning. Where else would it be better to focus on Einstein’s history and his relationship with Ulm to present his groundbreaking theories and their practical application in our daily lives? Because ZwickRoell deals with the physics and achievements of Albert Einstein, this groundbreaking thinker and son of Ulm, on a daily basis at ZwickRoell, I really admire it, it inspires us “- says Dr. Jan Stefan Roell, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of ZwickRoell AG. Klaus Cierocki, CEO of ZwickRoell, adds: “For us, as a Ulm-based company, it is a matter close to our hearts, not only because of our regional ties, to promote the Albert Einstein Discovery Center project with its great attractiveness far beyond Ulm and thus also support for research and scientific institutions. ”

The Albert Einstein Discovery Center is due to open in 2029 – just in time for the 150th birthday of the world-famous physicist – in his hometown. In three thematic areas, the life and work of the famous man from Ulm and the results of his research are presented to the public in a multimedia and interactive way. “With ZwickRoell as an additional sponsor, we are on the right track. However, support is important to us not only financially. It also shows that there is great recognition for science and education in industry “- says Dr. Nancy Hecker-Denschlag, Chairwoman of the Albert Einstein Discovery Center Ulm eV

Thanks to a donation, ZwickRoell is now part of the “The First 11” campaign. These are supporters who have donated at least € 50,000 to the Albert Einstein Discovery Center project. Company logos – the names of private donors – fans will be permanently displayed in the entrance area of ​​the Albert Einstein Discovery Center in the future. “The idea of ​​honoring the first eleven major donors is very typical of Ulm: Ulm Minster was funded by citizens more than 600 years ago, and donors are still honored on every visit to Minster,” explains Hecker-Denschlag.

About the Albert Einstein Discovery Center Ulm eV

Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879 in Ulm. The city always commemorates Albert Einstein in different and varied ways. However, as Einstein’s birthplace, Ulm has so far lacked a public institution to honor the most famous physicist of all time and the city’s most famous son. Albert Einstein Discovery Center Ulm eV wants to change that. The association was founded in September 2016 by the inhabitants of Ulm and the surrounding area. Apart from dr. Nancy Hecker-Denschlag as first president, Jens Burkert, Ditte Endriss, Karsten Bischoff and Alfred Frank are also on the board. The association has set itself the goal of creating a public institution that will allow citizens to experience Einstein’s importance for science and technology, but also for pacifism, humanism and international understanding in everyday life in the form of a world of experience. The project involves a facility that presents a comprehensive, modern, interactive and multimedia overview. The life and work of Albert Einstein in connection with the history of Ulm, Einstein’s theories in current technology, the implementation of technical phenomena on experimental sites at the Science Center and Einstein’s humanity in all its aspects can be experienced at exhibitions, workshops, lectures and worlds of experience.
