Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) contributes to a sustainable development of technology, economy, and society. In this connection, the “Karlsruhe School of Sustainability” (KSN) will offer interdisciplinary study modules in the future. Among them are a studies course parallel to the job, a master program, a graduate module, and the module “Local education” that addresses the public in the area of Karlsruhe. The Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research, and the Arts will fund the KSN with about EUR 400,000 for three years under the program “Strengthening the contribution of science to sustainable development”. 

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 10,000 employees cooperate in a broad range of disciplines in natural sciences, engineering sciences, economics, and the humanities and social sciences. KIT prepares its 22,800 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.
