CARMAH is grateful to receive support from multiple national and international partner organisations. On the one hand, there are those who contribute to our work as financial supporters, such as the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation or the European Commission. Some of our partners, on the other hand, not only finance researcher positions, but also complement our research as collaboration partners, such as the Museum of Natural History or the national museums of the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation. And with the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, more specifically the Department of European Ethnology, CARMAH has found its physical and intellectual home. On this page we introduce who we work with, and how they contribute to CARMAH.
The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation is the main financial supporter of CARMAH. The majority of the centre’s work is funded through the €3.5 million prize money awarded to Sharon Macdonald as part of her 5-year Alexander von Humboldt Professorship. This includes, in particular, the activities of flagship project Making Differences in Berlin. In addition, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation supports researchers who wish to join CARMAH as research fellows through their many other funding programmes.
