FREE PARTICIPATION: The course fee for KIT staff is paid centrally.
The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology combines the missions of a
university of the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg with teaching and research
tasks and a national research center of the Helmholtz Association
conducting program-oriented research on behalf of the Federal Republic
of Germany. Within these missions, KIT operates along the three
strategic fields: research, teaching, and innovation.
This course gives new members of staff an overview of the structures,
programmes, tasks, and the organization of the KIT. After an
introduction, the divisions of the KIT are presenting their organization
and a walk around an information marketplace will offer the opportunity
to get into conversation with the members of the divisions about the
KIT, its tasks and processes and other interesting questions of the
attendees. On the second day, the participants attend workshops where
they get a methodological equipment for the planning of their own
scientific or professional future. Both days finish with a guided visit
of interesting research projects and locations on campus north (day 1)
and campus south (day 2).
