The Weizenbaum Institute is supported by a research consortium from Berlin and Brandenburg, which includes the four major Berlin universities, the University of Potsdam and two non-university research institutions.
The Weizenbaum Institute was founded in 2017 and is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the State of Berlin.
It is supported by a research consortium from Berlin and Brandenburg, which includes Freie Universität Berlin (FU Berlin), Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU Berlin), Technische Universität Berlin (TU Berlin), Universität der Künste Berlin (UdK), Universität Potsdam (UP), as well as the Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems (FOKUS) and the Berlin Social Science Center (WZB).
The Weizenbaum-Institut e.V. is responsible for the coordination of the network and the legal representation of the Weizenbaum Institute. With the start of the establishment phase of the institute in 2022, a larger part of the research has been integrated into the Weizenbaum-Institut e.V. as an independent research institution and eighth partner in the network.
