Gift of $100 million to transform energy and environment research at Princeton
Date:7/1/2008

tral to his life's work. A longtime supporter of the University's Annual Giving effort, he established the Gerhard R. Andlinger '52 Professorship of Social Sciences in 1991. Today, that professorship is held by Robert Wuthnow, chair of the Department of Sociology and director of the Center for the Study of Religion.

In 2000, he made a landmark gift to Princeton creating the Andlinger Center for the Humanities, which encompasses Chancellor Green, East Pyne, the Joseph Henry House and the Scheide Caldwell House. Globally, he also has been a major contributor to cancer research, educational institutions and the arts.

"Princeton University already has substantial work under way on a variety of energy-related and environmental problems, from both the technological and public policy perspectives," Andlinger said. "My hope in establishing this center is to bring those strengths together and focus them on finding 'cleantech' solutions to the most important problems facing our society today. The work of the center will help create a better world for our children and grandchildren, which I see as a personal as well as institutional responsibility."

Research at the Andlinger Center will focus on making fundamental discoveries in engineering and applied science and moving those findings rapidly into the marketplace. Major areas of research will include improving energy efficiency and conservation; developing sustainable energy sources; and improving management of carbon, the component of fossil fuels that leads to the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide.

In each of these areas, the center will build on Princeton's strengths in fundamental engineering, particularly the engineering of materials, a field that combines physics and chemistry with nanotechnology to produce materials with entirely new properties. New kinds of semiconductors, for example, could allow solar cells to be produced inexpensively and in vast quantities. New types of ceramic coa
