Dr. Norbert Lammert has been the Chairman of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation since January 2018. He has been actively involved in German politics for almost four decades. Holding important positions, he has played a key role in Germany’s political life. He was a member of the German Bundestag from 1980 to 2017, serving as Vice President from 2002 to 2005 and later as President from 2005 to 2017. From 1989 to 1998, he held the positions of Parliamentary State Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Education and Science (1989-1994), the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs (1994-1997), and the Federal Ministry of Transportation (1997-1998). From 1995 to 1998, he served as Federal Government Coordinator of German Aerospace Policy.

He began his political career as a member of the city council of his hometown of Bochum. For more than 20 years, he was party Chairman of the CDU for the Ruhr district, a region he has always been closely associated with through his membership in supervisory and advisory bodies of companies and cultural institutions.

In 2003, Dr. Lammert received an assignment as a lecturer in political science at the Ruhr University of Bochum, which awarded him an honorary professorship in 2008. His numerous publications deal with social, economic, and cultural policy issues.
