For an Environment Worth Living in

Living conditions on Earth are changing as profoundly as never before: Change of climate and the environment, demographic, technical, and economic developments affect the availability and quality of air, water, and food. The KIT Climate and Environment Center develops strategies and technologies to secure the natural bases of life. It is not only aimed at eliminating the causes of environmental problems, but increasingly on adapting to changing conditions.

Since its foundation on January 01, 2009, the KIT Climate and Environment Center with its about 600 scientists from 33 institutes has therefore been acquiring fundamental and application knowledge on climate and environmental change. From this knowledge, it derives strategies and technologies to secure the natural bases of life. The advantage of an already existing large scope of expertise in natural sciences, engineering, and social sciences is used to develop in multidisciplinary cooperation a center of outstanding international visibility.
