Climate and Environment Change, as well as social, technical and economic developments, are having an unprecedented impact on soil, water, air and the subsurface, and thus on ecosystems and the foundations of human life.
Our mission: Exploring Climate and Environment, Developing Solutions
The KIT Climate and Environment Center develops basic and applied knowledge on climate and environmental change. On this basis, it develops concepts as well as nature-based and technological solutions for safeguarding the natural basis of life and shaping the living environment.
Since its foundation on January 1, 2009, the KIT Climate and Environment Center has been offering a broad range of expertise in the natural, technical, and social sciences with about 700 scientists from 30 institutes. In interdisciplinary networking, we are developing a center of outstanding international visibility. In doing so, we consider both the causes of environmental problems and the adaptation to changing conditions.
Our vision: For an environment worth living in
In interdisciplinary networking, we are developing a center with outstanding international visibility. We consider both the causes of environmental problems and how to adapt to changing conditions.
