KIT: The Research University in the Helmholtz Association

In the years to come, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology will further merge the duties of a national research institution and of a state university.


KIT will concentrate even more strongly on the topics of Energy, Mobility, and Information. In this way, the KIT aligns its major research areas to the long-term challenges facing society, the goal being to develop sustainable solutions of urgent problems of the future.


“Our overarching KIT 2025 strategy outlines the way for the years to come,” explains KIT President, Professor Holger Hanselka. “Our objective is to make decisive contributions in top-level research, teaching, and innovation to the success of major projects of our society, such as the ‘energiewende,’ safe and sustainable mobility, or intelligent technologies for the information society. We achieve this by the high quality of our research in national and international competition and research-oriented teaching. This will result in optimum preparation of our students for their responsible duties in society, industry, and science.”
