1963 – The Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute (GDI ) opens

Gottlieb Duttweiler prepared the way for the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute (GDI) when he set up the “Im Grüene” Foundation in 1947. Shortly before his death in 1962, he laid the actual foundation stone for the "construction of an international educational and research institute", as is stated in the deed of foundation. Switzerland’s oldest think tank conducts research into economic and social issues, and promotes unorthodox and unconventional thinking – completely in the spirit of its founder.
