KIT Karlsruhe Institute of Technology was established by the merger of the Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe GmbH and the Universitaet Karlsruhe (TH) on October 01, 2009. KIT is a public non-profit institution bundling the missions of a State University of Baden-Wuerttenberg and of a large-scale research center of the German Helmholtz Association. Within these missions, KIT is operating along the three strategic fields of action of research, higher education, and innovation. With about 9.300 employees, 24.300 students, and a total annual budget of about 780 million Euro, KIT is one of the largest institutions of research and higher education in natural sciences and engineering in Europe.
In this project, KIT will participate with the Steinbuch Centre for Computing (SCC), a central scientific institution and center for data-intensive computing and analysis of large-scale data, with high national and international visibility as well as an innovative and agile IT service provider at KIT, with the Institute of Microstructure Technology (IMT), a one-stop-shop for advanced micro and nano system development and upscaling, and with the Karlsruhe Nano Micro Facility (KNMF).
