THE FASCINATION OF HISTORY – RESEARCHING THE PAST, MAKING NEW DISCOVERIES,
PRESENTING FINDINGS TO THE PUBLIC. THESE ARE THE GOALS
SHARED BY FRANCK GODDIO AND THE HILTI FOUNDATION.
Established in 1996 by the Martin Hilti Family Trust, the Hilti Foundation finances and coordinates all global Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities on behalf of the Hilti Group and the Martin Hilti Family Trust. The Hilti Foundation is committed to a selected range of innovative and sustainable projects in the focus areas of affordable housing, community development, culture, disaster relief, education and social entrepreneurship. Just as the Hilti logo has long been recognized as the hallmark of innovative products and market services, the name Hilti Foundation stands for the promotion of innovative ideas and projects that help build a better future, as put forth in the Hilti Group mission statement.
Since the establishment in 1996, one focus of the Hilti Foundation’s cultural commitment has been the support of the underwater archaeological work of Franck Goddio and his team off the Egyptian coast. Franck Goddio works closely with qualified experts from different scientific fields and enjoys the support of the Centre for Maritime Archaeology at Oxford University.
