Bereich "Natürliche und gebaute Umwelt"


Division "Natural and Built Environment"

The KIT-division "Natural and Built Environment" summarizes the topics research, teaching and innovation of the KIT-faculties of Architecture and Civil Engineering, Geo and Environmental Sciences and their corresponding university institutes. Furthermore, the three Helmholtz programmes "Atmosphere and Climate", "Renewable Energy" and "Energy Efficiency, Resources and Materials" as well as the four Institutes for Meteorology and Climate Research (IMK-AAF, IMK-ASF, IMK-IFU and IMK-TRO) in the Helmholtz Association are key elements for the research in this division.
