KIT’s innovation efforts build a bridge between important scientific findings and their application for the benefit of society, economic prosperity, and the preservation of our natural basis of life.
50 years after the foundation of Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe and 181 years after the foundation of Universität Karlsruhe, both institutions were successful in the Excellence Initiative of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Federal States 2006. Their concept for the future envisaged the unique merger of both institutions into Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). On October 1st 2009, both institutions merged into the new legal entity of KIT.
