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

Gerhard R. (Gerry) Andlinger, an alumnus and noted international business executive, has made a gift to Princeton University to accelerate research on effective and sustainable solutions to problems of energy and the environment. Princeton will use the gift, which will total $100 million, to create the Gerhard R. Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment within the School of Engineering and Applied Science.

The Andlinger Center will include a major state-of-the-art engineering research laboratory and several new faculty positions as well as endowed funds for innovative research, outreach and a visitors program. The gift provides the foundation for a series of investments the University plans to make in fundamental science, public policy and technological solutions related to sustainable energy production, climate change and related fields.

"As we witness the soaring global demand for energy and its profound environmental impact, we have a tremendous responsibility to turn our scientific knowledge into concerted action," said President Shirley M. Tilghman. "With this visionary and transformative gift, Gerry Andlinger is positioning Princeton to bring its very significant strengths in science, engineering and public policy to bear on the challenge of developing technologies that will provide future generations with a healthy environment and sustainable sources of energy. I am enormously grateful to Gerry for his generosity and leadership."

Andlinger, a member of the class of 1952, is chairman and founder of the private investment firm Andlinger & Co. He came to the United States in 1948 from his native Austria as the winner of a newspaper essay contest and then attended Princeton University on a scholarship.

After earning a degree from Harvard Business School and serving in the U.S. Army, Andlinger quickly became noted for his managerial expertise and turnaround skills while making philanthropy and service to others cen
