Support scientific research

Fundamental research, or the search to push the boundaries of our knowledge, is a necessity in our society. Without this search there would be no penicillin, velcro or post-it's.

But the search for new foundations of science is not always readily visible. It is only after many years of searching, testing and double-checking that scientists come out. As many years go by before fundamental scientific research finds a practical application. This long search makes today's researchers tomorrow's inventors.
