Knowledge Transfer and Political Relations Department

"We create knowledge for society and the environment". Already since 2015, KIT has firmly anchored knowledge transfer in its mission and further developed it in 2018 in the course of its successful application to become an Excellence University "The Research University in the Helmholtz Association | Living the Change". The idea behind this is that meeting the major global challenges requires more and more transformation processes in the economy and society. In research, teaching, and innovation, KIT takes into account current developments and needs of society, economy, politics, and culture and relies on transfer and bidirectional dialog, for example in real laboratories or formats such as KIT Science Week. The Knowledge Transfer and Political Relations Department (STS-WT) bundles KIT's knowledge transfer activities and promotes networking between KIT and selected stakeholders such as politics.
