FIZ Karlsruhe is one of 89 institutes that form the Leibniz Association (Wissenschaftsgemeinschaft Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz e. V. – “Leibniz-Gemeinschaft”). Together, the Leibniz Institutes have a staff of more than 16,800, of which more than 7,800 are scientists, and a total annual budget of more than 1.4 thousand million Euros. Leibniz Institutes work on scientific problems of social relevance, both strategically and with a subject focus, in keeping with the Leibniz Motto “Theoria cum praxi”, i.e. science for the benefit of mankind. The Leibniz Association is jointly funded by the German Federal Government and the German Federal States.

About 80% of FIZ Karlsruhe’s budget is financed by own revenues. Since its foundation in 1977, our organization has been jointly funded by the German Federal Government and the Federal States according to the guidelines of the “Forschungsförderung” agreement (“Promotion of Research”). Funding partners are the Federal Republic of Germany, the Federal State Baden-Württemberg, and the scientific organizations Max Planck Society for the Advancement of Science (MPG), Fraunhofer Society for the Advancement of Applied Research (FhG), German Physical Society (DPG), Association of German Engineers (VDI), Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI), and Association of German Mathematicians (DMV).
