Why we decided to start this foundation and what does it mean for the future?
@ the spin foundation we want scientist to able to use their knowledge and skills for projects that they consider worth their time.
Science in the 21st century needs to be flexible, efficient and ready to adapt as well as seizing opportunities.
The big discoveries of sciences of
50 years ago such as :
automation, AI, machine learning.
Data now governs a lot of todays
world and are developping into
more complex versions.
Science, to adapt and responds, needs private research and practical applications of knowledge and skills.
However we can see that science funding is completly counterproductive and time consuming. It is made for accademical research dine in a certain way with a certain frame, that doesn’t take into consideration the real needs of svcientist for progress.
If only scientist time and knowledge was use to actual research by giving them the freedom and resources needed for real progress.
The Vision: Tomorrow we support fundamental
What do we do?
Pushing great scientific minds to use their skills and competence to start and build endeavours with world impact and market disruption potential
Accompanying, through business competence, expertise and funding , scientists to create revolutionary companies
Re-investing the foundation profits into fundamental research and scientists
Giving sponsors and scientists a return on their investment
Giving grants to individual investigators and their projects
Launching the Island Institute to conduct scientific research in-house by supporting teams of top researchers in fundamental physics and cosmology
Offering a modern and efficient context that nurtures progress and simplifies processes
Our team is formed by a combination of scientists, entrepreneurs, intellectuals, philantropists which believe European science can benefit from a new, fresh and proactive approach to funding.
Through the combination of different expertise and skills we bring together projects made by people with common goals:
Make science better and give opportunities to scientists to focus on what is really important
Bring back to science great talents who have left for the corporate world because of lack of opportunities and funding in their fields
Create projects that will serve the world using great scientific knowledge and skills.
Who can join the team?
very different people have different roles to play in the Spin Foundation.
The most important thing is having a real passion for science and wanting to transform the way society today uses science.
