KIT Materials Center
The challenges of the digital economy of the 21st century in the context of the forth industrial revolution require a constant development of new materials to enable complex applications. The KIT Materials Center integrates KIT research groups from the natural sciences, engineering and life sciences, which share a common interest in material research and in the development of new materials.
The close cooperation between scientists from different disciplines creates a great potential for leading edge research in material sciences. In the KIT Materials Center, new materials and technologies are developed from basic research to economic implementation. The development of nanostructured materials as well as the development of environmentally friendly technologies are vitally important. Furthermore, the integration of information-based approaches and modeling in the context of the digitalization of material sciences plays a growing, and increasingly important, role.
The work of the KIT Materials Center covers five topics:
- Synthesis and structuring
- Modelling and virtualization
- Technical systems
- Biological systems
