Innovation and Relations Management

The KIT Business Club

The platform for people of science and business people
LaborKIT

More than 5000 scientists at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) are constantly working to develop new promising technologies for industry and society. At the same time, companies are showing a growing demand for new ideas and innovative products. The KIT Business Club has made it its mission to bring these two worlds together so that they can benefit effectively from each other.

Due to the close connection to the KIT Executive Committee and the organizational embedding in the KIT Innovation and Relationship Management, the employees of the KIT Business Club are the central contact persons for information and contacts in the entire KIT.

"KIT EinBlicke"

The KIT Business Club now extends its offer by a digital format called "KIT EinBlicke". Within the scope of the individual events, we aim to bring the excellent research of KIT to your desk quickly and easily. In each session, an impulse lecture is followed by sufficient time for questions, discussion, and exchange, both with the respective speaker and with the other guests.

2nd Fireside Lounge 2020

In October, the KIT Business Club invites the prime contact partners of the member companies to the second fireside lounge this year. After an impulse lecture by Würth Elektronik and a presentation from KIT, there will be sufficient opportunities for discussion and networking at the following dinner.

Technology Day 2020

Due to the corona-related cancellation of the first theme day in May, the event with the theme "Energy System for the Future" is to be postponed to the date of the original second theme day in November. As far as possible, the speakers as well as the supporting programme should remain the same. We are looking forward to the event and hope for many interested parties.
