Tipping points in society and their driving forces:

Scientists at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), together with the FZI Research Center for Information Technology, have developed a research design that is capable of predicting the sentiment in society and potential negative tipping points. This enables social developments and potential anti-democratic dangers to be identified at an early stage.

The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is the research university in the Helmholtz Association, operated in cooperation with the state of Baden-Württemberg. The KIT, as it exists today, was formed in 2009 as a result of the merger between the University of Karlsruhe and the Karlsruhe Research Center (Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe). The KIT employs over 9,000 people, more than half of whom work in natural science, engineering, economics, humanities and social science research.

In addition to KIT, the FZI Research Center for Computer Science is also involved in the cooperation project with the Alfred Landecker Foundation. The FZI is an independent and non-profit institution for computer science application research and technology transfer, founded in 1985 by the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Economics and the University of Karlsruhe (now KIT). In 2011, a main office was opened in Berlin to ensure closer collaboration with policymakers and civil society and to increase the visibility of its own research and developments. This is also where the House of Participation is located as a center of excellence on issues of digital democracy and participation.
