Also in light of limited finances, cooperation with suitable partners contributes significantly to the good outcome of a project. Their expertise, experience and motivation are often the key to success, and help to secure it.

We are therefore very happy to have found support from such partners for the DLR_School_Lab and extend to them our sincere thanks for their effective collaboration.

The equipment and staff costs for the DLR_School_Lab Lampoldshausen/Stuttgart experiments could be financed to a large extent by a grant from the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers. As Germany's largest research organization it also supports DLR_School_Labs in Berlin, Göttingen, Köln and Oberpfaffenhofen.

We thank the Kreissparkasse Heilbronn for helping us to have a microgravity drop tower. We are grateful to Fortis for supporting our DLR_School_Lab.
