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.



Growth Mechanism of Fungi Decoded

Fungal cells elongate nearly infinitely at their apexes. Scientists at KIT figured out how this growth mechanism works.

Mini Test Tubes Made of Water Drops

Spin-off from KIT develops laboratory technology that supersedes expensive pipetting robots in high-throughput screening.

3D-Ink Eraser Developed

KIT developed a procedure that enables the erasing of 3D-printed microstructures from printers using Direct Laser Writing.
