In the field of science, the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung primarily promotes research, teaching and training in the engineering sciences. The focus of the support measures is on the subjects of glass, ceramics, stones and earths. To ensure that these subjects do not become a marginal area at technical universities and to make them more attractive to students, financial support is provided to universities and innovative research projects.

Improving educational opportunities and enabling young people to focus strongly and sustainably on their education through financial support is also an ongoing mission for the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung.
