lookKIT is directed to a broad public - alumnae and alumni, people in economy, politics and media.

The magazine is published in a circulation of 13,000 copies. There are four issues each year. In a big size, the editorial department presents close-ups of KIT in word and image, faces and stories.

Current Issue

The new issue of lookKIT is dedicated to the responsibility of research towards society and environment.

You will learn how a team at KIT’s Institute for Thermal Energy Technology and Safety (ITES) provides decision-making support if damage occurs in one of the four nuclear power plants in Ukraine. Genetic engineering researcher Professor Holger Puchta, Head of the Joseph Gottlieb Kölreuter Institut for Plant Sciences (JKIP) of KIT, explains how he looks at ethical questions about intervention in the genome in the course of his work with the molecular genetic scissors CRISPR/Cas. Moreover, we introduce you to the KIT Academy for Responsible Research, Teaching, and Innovation (ARRTI). The academy was set up in 2019 as part of the Excellence Strategy at KIT and imparts skills for considering the ethical dimension in the early stages of the research and innovation process. In addition we give you a first insight into the program of the second KIT Science Week which will take place from October 10 to 15 under the motto ”Making the Future Sustainable. Together.“ It combines scientific exchange in expert conferences with events for all those eager to learn. During these events, KIT will enter a dialogue with citizens. Impulses from society thus find their way into research at KIT.
