Research centers across the world spur scientific discovery and technological innovation. However, research institutes require financial support to conduct and expand their research. As an internationally recognized institution, the SLF has profound effects on the local economy, provides a range of educational benefits, and positively affects the people of Davos and Graubunden. We assessed its contributions in these areas by examining SLF records, surveys of Institute employees and conference participants, the SLF's educational programs, and the Avalanche Bulletin, and trends in avalanche damages.
