Fritzing is a research project that was made possible through long-term funding (2007-2009) from MWFK Brandenburg (Ministry of Science, Research and Culture in the state of Brandenburg), based on a grant application by Prof. Reto Wettach.
Further support was provided through the Faculty of Media at Bauhaus-University Weimar, and through IxDS Interaction Design Studios.
