The institute Weeber+Partner

Our institute

As the institute's name implies, we are focused on planning, consulting, research and communication in the fields of urbanism, sociology, housing as well as urban amenities and services. Our clients mostly belong to the public and non-profit sector – e.g. federal and state ministries, regional and municipal authorities, foundations, housing companies and social service providers. In 1969 we founded our fist office in Stuttgart, in 1988 we opened our Berlin branch office. Now we are a team of around 25 professionals – predomi-nantly urban planners, social scientists or geographers. Our institute comprises a limited (GmbH) company. Managers are in Stuttgart Dipl.-Ing. (FH) Simone Bosch-Lewandowski, M.A. Philip Klein, Dr.-Ing. Lisa Küchel and Gabriele Steffen, in Berlin Dr. Martina Buhtz and Dr. Heike Gerth and as shareholders Prof. Dr. Rotraut Weeber and Dr.-Ing. Hannes Weeber.

Interplay of On-site Projects and Research

The connection of practical experience and scientific analysis is a solid base for innovative and area-based solutions responding to citizens' needs. We regularly incorporate our knowledge about issues arising in practice into research projects – and vice versa.

Interdisciplinary Coworking

Tasks that belong together should also be thought about and tackled together. Connecting different fields of knowledge, approaches and attitudes helps to achieve tangible results which are matching today’s complex circumstances.

Participatory Approaches

All actors who can contribute, especially the citizens, should be included. We are experienced with a variety of methods to engage people and institutions on-site, always trying to come up with appealing forms of participation.

Applying Diverse Empirical Methods

Carefully ascertained and processed information is essential for solid and practically rele-vant outcomes. This embraces a wide range of know-how in empirical methods, statistics, result-testing and project management.
