Karlsruhe Institute of Technology


The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) was founded on October 01, 2009 by a merger of Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe and UniversitÀt Karlsruhe.

KIT bundles the missions of both precursory institutions: A university of the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg with teaching and research tasks and a large-scale research institution of the Helmholtz Association conducting program-oriented provident research on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany. Within these missions, KIT is operating along the three strategic fields of action of research, teaching, and innovation.
