In 2020, the new building on Campus North of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) will serve as another bridge between chemistry and biology. Twelve research groups will work on the nearly 5,800 square meters. In addition, the building is planned to accommodate facilities for zebrafish, automatic screening, and chemical synthesis. Construction of the building is planned to be completed in early 2020. Today, the roofing ceremony was celebrated.
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 24,400 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. KIT is one of the German universities of excellence.
