ECLE is supported by the Fritz Thyssen Stiftung.
Headquartered in Cologne, the Fritz Thyssen Foundation was founded on 7th July 1959 for the purpose of promoting the science and research. Amélie Thyssen and her daughter, Anita Countess Zichy-Thyssen, established the Foundation in memory of August and Fritz Thyssen. It was the first large private individual foundation promoting science and research to be founded in the Federal Republic of Germany after the Second World War.
Under its Statutes, the exclusive purpose of the foundation is to directly support schools of higher learning and research institutions, primarily in Germany, with a special focus on junior scholars.
