FREE Survey


IGAAP is closeley collaborating with the US-American Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial Encounters (FREE). The Chairman of IGAAP, physicist Illobrand von Ludwiger, is a member of the Board of Directors of FREE. IGAAP-member Dr. Marcel Polte (hypnotherapist) is a member of the Research Committee of FREE.


FREE is a scientific research not-for-profit organization founded by Dr. Rudy Schild, Dr. Edgar Mitchell and several others. Rudy is an Emeritus Professor of Astro-Physics at Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and is the Executive Director of FREE. Dr. Schild was for many years on the Board of Directors of the John Mack Institute. Dr. Mack was a psychiatrist and professor at Harvard Medical School and a pioneer in investigating individuals that have had UFO related "contact" with non human intelligent beings. Dr. Edgar Mitchell was the 6th man on the Moon, is known as the "Father" of the modern UFO Disclosure Movement, and is also the founder of the Institute for Noetic Sciences. Both Edgar and Rudy have also published scientific articles on the physics of our reality and have contributed to the emerging field of what is now commonly known as "Consciousness Studies."


FREE has various scientists, academics and the top researchers in the field known as UFO related contact. These academics and scientists are undertaking the first ever long term comprehensive ACADEMIC research study on the UFO related Contact Phenomena -- The FREE Experiencer Research Study. This research study will focus on individuals who have had any type of UFO related "Contact" with a "Non-Human Intelligent Being". The objective of FREE's study is, for the first time, to have comprehensive statistical and cross tabulated data findings about the phenomena of UFO related contact as well as interview findings to back up the quantitative data. FREE expects to have an initial publication of its findings by the summer of 2016.


In the near future we will post the German version of the Phase 1 FREE Survey on our website.
