With more than 9,000 employees and an annual budget of almost 800 million euros, Karlsruhe has become one of the world’s largest research and teaching institutions with the potential to become a world leader in selected research areas. The goal: KIT will become an institution of top-level research and excellent scientific training as well as an outstanding location for academic life, lifelong learning, comprehensive further education, unlimited knowledge exchange, and a sustainable culture of innovation.
The KIT Mobility Systems Center represents the merger of over 37 KIT institutes with current research projects in the field of mobility. In addition, already existing research clusters are consistently integrated under the umbrella of mobility systems. By bundling research activities in the field of mobility systems, the innovation potential at KIT is further strengthened. Furthermore, the opportunity is opened up to consolidate the mobility topic at KIT in a sustainable and strategic way. Furthermore, the center offers a central contact point for direct contacts between science, industry, politics, and society. This merger is intended to create synergies and underline the importance of the KIT’s position in the field of mobility.
