About us


The Centre for Social Investment is a central academic institute of the University of Heidelberg cooperating with the economics, social science, law and theological faculties. Its mission is to improve the theoretical and practical understanding of social investment through research, teaching, networking and consulting (cf. programme).


The Centre for Social Investment was founded on July 1st, 2006, as a central academic institution at the University of Heidelberg. Prof. Dr. Helmut Anheier, the founder of the CSI, Dr. Volker Then and senior fellow Dr. Andreas Schröer have been members of the institute from the beginning. Since its foundation, the CSI has been growing rapidly and has become an important voice in the civil society debate.
