Karlsruhe Institute of Technology
On October 01, 2009, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) was founded by a merger of Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe and Universität Karlsruhe. The basis was the KIT Merger Act that was adopted unanimously by the Baden-Württemberg state parliament in July 2009. KIT bundles the missions of both precursory institutions: A university of the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg with teaching and research tasks and a large-scale research institution of the Helmholtz Association conducting program-oriented provident research on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany. Within these missions, KIT is operating along the three strategic fields of action of research, teaching, and innovation.
With roundabout 8000 employees and an annual budget of about EUR 700 million, one of the largest research and teaching institutions worldwide is established in Karlsruhe.
The KIT is represented in MeRegioMobil by a total of 11 chairs from 3 departments.
