Centre for Social Investment (CSI) (Archive)
Incubator for Social Commitment
The Centre for Social Investment (CSI) is a central scientific institution of Heidelberg University that is operated with the cooperation of the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences, the Faculty of Law and the Faculty of Theology. It sees itself as an interdisciplinary research, educational, advisory and information centre that aims at increasing the performance of non-profit-organisations and foundations, and at promoting the idea of foundations and working for the public benefit. A new and recently staffed professorship for law that was created with Excellence funding and is operated jointly by the CSI and the Faculty of Law marks an even closer networking of these two institutions.
