The interdisciplinary approach of the KIT Materials Center links fundamental and applied research. It crosses the lines between disciplines and creates in this way new synergies. The involved institutes and research groups conduct the research work on their own authority. The joining of subjects, the interdisciplinary collaboration of scientists, and the common use of high-end devices and installations, develops a new quality of research and teaching.
The KIT Materials Center pools the excellence of several outstanding research programs, projects, and facilities in this field.
