Reduced consumption of resources is associated with many challenges for companies and institutions every day, examples being illumination, energy supply or waste management. Concrete efforts of researchers, service units, university groups or the city at KIT will be presented by the ZUKUNFTSCAMPUS in a lecture called “Facetten der Nachhaltigkeit” (facets of sustainability). This presentation will be made on Friday, June 12, 9.15 hrs, at the Kollegiengebäude der Mathematik on KIT Campus South (Englerstraße 2, room 014). The presentation (in German only) is part of KIT’s program for the Sustainability Days 2015.

 

KIT possesses extensive scientific competences for research into, development, and integrated planning of the city of the future in all major aspects. Scientists of five KIT Centers – Climate and Environment; Energy; Mobility Systems; Humans and Technology; Information, Systems, Technologies – work on studies and the sustainable design of urban spaces from their disciplines’ perspective and in an inter- and transdisciplinary manner.

 

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.
