Sustainable and reliable development of future mobility and energy use is a challenge faced by mankind. Science and technology can help master this challenge. To produce and communicate knowledge in this and other areas, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and BASF enter a strategic partnership. The corresponding agreement was signed on Thursday, November 30, in Karlsruhe.
Being „The Research University in the Helmholtz Association“, KIT creates and imparts knowledge for the society and the environment. It is the objective to make significant contributions to the global challenges in the fields of energy, mobility and information. For this, about 9,300 employees cooperate in a broad range of disciplines in natural sciences, engineering sciences, economics, and the humanities and social sciences. KIT prepares its 26,000 students for responsible tasks in society, industry, and science by offering research-based study programs. Innovation efforts at KIT build a bridge between important scientific findings and their application for the benefit of society, economic prosperity, and the preservation of our natural basis of life.
