Science Organization

Science Organization

The scientific disciplines of KIT are structured in five divisions. They organize research and teaching. The KIT centers focus on central questions of fundamental importance for our society. Here, scientists work on interdisciplinary division-overlapping research and innovation topics.

The assignment of tasks is obvious from the organizational chart of the KIT.

The Divisions

The institutes of the KIT form the basis of the divisions. Research, teaching, and innovation are conducted there. In the Helmholtz programs, the divisions organize program-oriented research, in the KIT departments they organize university teaching.

The KIT Centers

Central interdisciplinary research activities at KIT are bundled in the KIT centers. They pursue a specific scientific approach and work on long-term tasks to achieve strategic goals. They also represent these strategic research fields of the KIT to the public.
