Research to Business


Companies are able to experience technologies and trends eyeball to eyeball at the KIT!

As part of the event series RESEARCH TO BUSINESS live companies can get an insight into individual institutions or topics. In the half-day workshop, the scientific employees present their current state of their research and open their laboratories.
This event brings science and economy in direct contact with each other and provides a first basis for future cooperation.

Use the chance to …

  • discover brand-new research of the Karlsruhe institute of technology which could be interesting for your enterprise to discover.
  • get the technologies directly introduced by the scientists who did developed them with the help of lectures or on basis of exhibits.
  • cooperate with institutes of the KIT directly.
  • dive into the world of science during interesting lab inspections and excursions.
