The Weizenbaum Institute

Research for the Networked Society

The Weizenbaum Institute conducts excellent, independent, interdisciplinary and fundamental digitalization research. It provides politics, business and civil society with well-founded findings and value-based recommendations for action. In this way, it helps to ensure that digitalization and networking are not only better understood, but can also be shaped in a sustainable, self-determined and responsible manner.

It is supported by a research consortium from Berlin and Brandenburg, which includes Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, Berlin University of the Arts and the University of Potsdam, as well as the Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems (FOKUS) and the Berlin Social Science Center (WZB).

The Weizenbaum Institute was founded in 2017 and is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the State of Berlin. It was named after the German-American computer science pioneer and critic Joseph Weizenbaum.
