The Research of the Set-up Phase

The Weizenbaum Institute conducts interdisciplinary and fundamental research regarding the interaction between digitalisation and society. Designing digitalisation for the benefit of society and protecting self-determination and involvement within the networked society are focal points of its research.

During the five-year set-up phase of the institute (09/2017-09/2022), 21 research groups were assigned to four research areas.

The research areas were supplemented by three accompanying cross-sectional formats on overarching issues, which focused on overarching questions of ethics and the political shaping of the relationship between technology and society.
