Between 2008 and 2009 the SEB open source project was financed mainly by ETH Zurich
and in part by University of Giessen. From 2009 until 2014, the project was financed by the AAA/SWITCH
and the Swiss Learning Infrastructure 2013 project
framework as well as by ETH Zurich. From 2014-2016 ETH Zurich financed the SEB project on its own. From 2016-2020 there was a SEB Consortium in order to get some financing apart from project money. Due to changes in the Swiss VAT regulations the SEB Consortium had to be terminated in 2020 because we could not handle anymore the legal consortium construction with a reasonable administrative overhead. Starting in 2021 with the SEB Alliance we have a legal construction which sustains the ongoing funding of the Safe Exam Browser open source project to continue its maintenance, development and support activities.
