The KIT Business Club

The platform for people of science and business people

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.
