Weizenbaum Institute is an academic institution in Berlin, Germany that conducts independent, interdisciplinary and fundamental research into the issues of a digitalised and networked society. The Weizenbaum Institute was founded in 2017 and is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the State of Berlin.

The Weizenbaum Institute’s Open Fellowship Programme offers researchers worldwide the opportunity to spend up to three months at the institute to develop, discuss and investigate new ideas relating to the topic of digitisation.

The programme is open to all disciplines as long as the proposed project is related to the research profile of the Weizenbaum Institute. Particularly encouraged are project ideas that combine basic research and interdisciplinarity with social relevance and a reference to the guiding values of the Weizenbaum Institute, such as the strengthening of individual and collective self-determination and sustainability in dealing with and using digital technology. Projects should open up new perspectives on the digitally networked society or contribute innovative proposals for solutions for research and practice.

Particularly encouraged are applications that strengthen the international networking of the Weizenbaum Institute and relate to research perspectives of the global south.
