Nietzsche Source received support from the following institutions:
The Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, has supported Nietzsche Source with personnel, rooms, and additional facilities since 1999 at the Institut des Textes et Manuscrits Modernes, CNRS-ENS, Paris and from 2008 to 2011 at the Maison Française d’Oxford, CNRS-MAEE, Oxford. The CNRS also supported Nietzsche Source through two specific grants from the programmes “Aides à Projet Nouveau” (2000, Paolo D’Iorio, director) and GIS Sciences de la cognition (1998-1999, Paolo D’Iorio and Bill Turner, directors) and, at the very beginning, within its thematic programme “Archives de la création” (1998-1999, Daniel Ferrer, Director).
The European Commission, within the eContentplus programme, funded the Discovery Project – Digital Semantic Corpora for Virtual Research in Philosophy — from 2007 to 2009, formed by 6 partner institutions under the coordination of Paolo D’Iorio and the Agora Project — Scholarly Open Access Research in European Philosophy — from 2011 to 2013.
The Foundation of Weimar Classics, one of Germany’s most significant cultural institutions, signed an agreement with the Association HyperNietzsche for the digitization and publication on the Internet of all documents relevant to the life and work of Friedrich Nietzsche that belong to the Foundation. This unprecedented agreement includes manuscripts, letters, biographical documents and first editions of Nietzsche’s works as well as the volumes in Nietzsche’s personal library. The joint goal of the Foundation and Nietzsche Source is both to support research and to increase the scholarly value of the archive materials.
The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft awarded two research grants (for the periods 2002-2004 and 2006-2007) to the project “HyperNietzsche – Pilotedition für das Modell eines netzbasierten geisteswissenschaftlichen Editions-, Kommunikations- und Forschungshypertextes”, directed by Prof. Dr. Günter Abel, TU Berlin and Paolo D’Iorio.
The Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation and the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research awarded Paolo D’Iorio with the Sofja Kovalevskaja Award "for outstanding young scientists and scholars” for the project "HyperNietzsche – Modell eines netzbasierten geisteswissenschaftlichen Editions-, Kommunikations- und Forschungshypertextes". The project was realised from 2001 to 2004 by a research group at the University of Munich (LMU, host researcher Prof. Dr. Hans Walter Gabler).
The French Ministry of Research, within the Action Concertée Incitative “Jeunes chercheurs”, funded the project "HyperNietzsche" from 2001 to 2003 under the direction of Paolo D’Iorio.
