Karlsruhe Institute of Technology Research

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology has been recognized as the 5th best research team in the Europe-Africa region from 2017 to 2019. The university provides all its doctoral researchers a monthly grant of €1,350 to uncover new findings, solutions, and applications that help solve global challenges.

KIT has embarked on research projects in multiple fields but it is widely known for its work in computer science, physics, and materials science. Its researchers have also frequented global research conferences and symposiums, such as CVPR: Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, WWW: The Web Conference, and ISWC: International Semantic Web Conference.

Its most cited research output is Weigend & Ahlrichs’ (2005) “Balanced basis sets of split valence, triple zeta valence and quadruple zeta valence quality for H to Rn: Design and assessment of accuracy.” It was published in the weekly peer-reviewed scientific journal Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics and has been cited 16,493 times.

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology’s second most popular publication is Hagiwara et al.’s (2012) “Review of particle physics: Particle data group,” which was published in Physical Review D and cited by research professionals and students worldwide 10,856 times. Meanwhile, KIT’s third most cited work is Mangelsdorf et al.’s (1995) “The nuclear receptor superfamily: The second decade,” which was published in the Cell and cited 8,096 times.

Other Karlsruhe Institute of Technology research facts and figures are its extensive research facilities that include 150 research institutes. These research institutes are the Institute for Anthropomatics and Robotics, the Institute of Applied Business Studies and Management, and the Institute of Applied Informatics and Formal Description Methods. KIT also has multiple research centers and schools that include the Centre for Functional Nanostructures, the Centre for Disaster Management and Risk Reduction Technology, and the Karlsruhe School of Optics and Photonics.
