Welcome to KIT Research Office

We support the scientific community and the management of KIT in the successful implementation and further development of the research strategy. To this end, we provide information, advice and support in a proactive, cooperative and solution-oriented manner in the acquisition of research funding. With our expertise in science management, we coordinate and support many strategic and operational projects and processes. In doing so, we interact with science, management and administration.

Our service is available to KIT employees.

Some information is therefore only available on the intranet.


KIT Research Office is available at the Campus South and Campus North .

DFG funds top-level research at KIT with around 11 million euros

New production cycles that can turn used products into new ones are needed for a resource-conserving, low-emission and at the same time competitive and strong economy. The Collaborative Research Center "Circular Factory for the Everlasting Product" deals with the question of how the maximum value retention of products can be achieved with the help of innovative production systems. Researchers from the fields of production engineering, product development and materials technology, ergonomics, robotics, computer science and knowledge modeling are cooperating in the network to investigate this question. (KIT Karlsruhe, Spokesperson: Professor Dr.-Ing. Gisela Lanza)

Nadja Alina Henke, Gözde Kabay, and Jingyuan Xu from KIT Receive Funding from the Nexus Program of the Carl Zeiss Foundation

Three young scientists from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) were successful with their projects at the Carl Zeiss Foundation. Within the CZS Nexus funding program, they will now each receive around 1.5 million euros for a period of up to five years. Dr. Nadja Alina Henke is researching how bioprocesses can be precisely scaled from laboratory scale to industrial scale, Dr. Gözde Kabay is developing biosensors for rapid diagnosis of kidney damage, and Dr. Jingyuan Xu is investigating the development of CO₂-neutral and electricity-free refrigeration.

Kathrin Gerling and Philip Willke from KIT Receive ERC Starting Grants

With their project proposals, two early-stage researchers from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) were successful in the recent call for Starting Grants of the European Research Council (ERC): Kathrin Gerling, Professor of Human-Computer Interaction and Accessibility, has proposed “AccessVR” to make virtual reality accessible for people with disabilities. Tenure-track professor Philip Willke conducts research at the interface between quantum technologies and nanosciences. His project ATOMQUANT will focus on an architecture for quantum information processing and magnetic sensor technology on the atomic level.
