Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society

Founded in March 2012 the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society is meant to enable innovative scientific research in the field of Internet and society and to observe the development of the Internet in its interplay with societal transformation processes. The Institute for Internet and Society serves as a platform for academics and strives to encourage the co-operative development of projects, applications and research networks. Through a variety of event formats the institute opens up the academic work and research results for questions arising from political players, civil society and business. The three founding associates – the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin, the University of Arts Berlin and the Social Science Research Center Berlin, in alliance with the Hans-Bredow Institute for Media Research in Hamburg as an integrated co-operation partner – secure the multilayer perspectives of the Institute by focusing on technological and legal perspectives as well as on sociological, economical and artistic aspects.
