Research at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)

KIT research will primarily be based on the capacities and knowledge of the scientists, who are members of the over 140 Institutes of KIT

They are supported by an excellent and worldwide unique scientific infrastructure. In KIT these scientists work in fields of competence depending on their expert know-how. Related fields of competence are bundled in areas of competence. Fields of Competence and Areas of Competence make up the Competence Portfolio of KIT. It is dynamic and develops and takes up new scientific topics.

While the Competence Portfolio is the basis of KIT research, KIT centers and KIT focuses are organizational units that bundle research projects. These projects give KIT research its profile and allow for the strategic planning of KIT research.
