Competence Portfolio

In KIT, scientists work in fields of competence depending on their expert know-how. Related fields of competence are bundled in competence areas. Fields of competence and Competence Areas make up the Competence Portfolio of KIT which is the basis of all research activities. Further more, the Competence Portfolio provides a forum for inter- and transdisciplinary scientific exchange within KIT and encourages the development of new fields of research.


The Competence Portfolio aims at intensifying the scientific dialogue as well as at improving the general conditions with regard to generating innovative research projects and developing new – particularly transdisciplinary – fields of research. Thus it is the breeding ground for new scientific ideas, projects, and networks, being either self-established or strategically planned.

In addition the Competence Portfolio serves to set off research collaborations between the KIT and external partners from industry and academia. Upon request, specialist workshops can be arranged including the participation of representatives of the relevant Competence Fields.
