On 1st October, the Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe and Universität Karlsruhe merged to form the new Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). KIT combines the missions of a university with teaching and research tasks and that of a large-scale research institution within the Helmholtz Association, namely conducting program-oriented research. With approximately 8000 employees and an annual budget of around EUR 700 million, KIT is one of the largest research and teaching institutions worldwide.
