Technology and university funding: RUB Motorsport e.V. - The Formula Student Team of the Ruhr University Bochum
This year FACTUREE - The Online Manufacturer is again supporting the team of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum as a premium sponsor at the international construction competition Formula Student.
In this competition, students from all over the world who are enthusiastic about technology design and construct their own racing cars in order to compete with other teams at events such as Formula Student Germany.
The RUB Motorsport team currently consists of 40 students from various disciplines such as mechanical engineering, computational engineering, electrical engineering, computer science and economics. Last year, the RUB18 racing car won trophies in two disciplines.
Gender equality: Girls' Day - Girls' Future Day
There is still significant gender inequality in technical occupations. In the case of training occupations, CNC machining is one of the most unequally distributed occupational fields with a male share of 95%, and the share of female students in classical engineering studies is currently only just over 20%. (Source: German Federal Statistical Office 2016)
We welcome young girls who are interested in technical professions and are happy to support this cause. FACTUREE – The Online Manufacturer therefore took part in the Girls' Day - Girls' Future Day 2019 and was able to welcome two inquisitive schoolgirls from the 9th grade of the Otto-Nagel-Gymnasium in Berlin-Biesdorf on 28 March to give them a first insight into an exciting and promising vocational field.

Climate action: The Kariba REDD+ CO2-project in Zimbabwe
The Fridays for Future movement's climate protests have brought the topic of climate protection more into the focus of the media.
FACTUREE – The Online Manufacturer has been supporting the Kariba REDD+ climate project in Zimbabwe since 2018 in cooperation with the climate protection experts from South Pole and is thus committed to the preservation of the climate and a future worth living for future generations.
The Kariba project protects the almost 800,000 hectares of forest on the southern shore of Zimbabwe's Caribbean Lake from overexploitation and deforestation. Project activities such as sustainable agriculture, community gardens, beekeeper training, fire protection and ecotourism also create jobs and generate sustainable incomes that benefit the local community and help the project achieve long-term success.
Since the climate project was launched in 2011, it has prevented emissions of more than 18 million tons of CO2.

Culture promotion: Maxim Gorki Theater in Berlin
FACTUREE – The Online Manufacturer is an official sponsor of the Maxim Gorki Theater in Berlin.
The multiple award-winning Gorki (e.g. Theater of the Year in the season 13/14) is not only the smallest state theatre in Berlin, but has always played a special role among them. Always courageous and consistently multicultural, "post migrant" in its self-description, Gorki is able, like hardly any other venue, to bring the great political themes of the world to the stage just as skillfully as to process the individual biographies of the actors publicly with psychopathological precision.
With its diverse ensemble and its self-image as a constant source of social impetus, Gorki stands like no other theater for diversity and progress, values that we live by every day.
