Ranking among the world elite: the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is one of the world’s biggest research institutes with outstanding international potential in science and engineering. Added to this are three Fraunhofer Institutes, the Centre for Art and Media Technology (ZKM) – the only one of its kind anywhere in the world – and many more similar organisations.
Another example of the top-class research institutes in our region is FZI Living Lab AAL, an organisation established as part of the strategic research into Ambient Assisted Living (AAL). Here FZI researchers work in interdisciplinary teams with partners from industry, healthcare and social care to develop technologies and service concepts that support independent living in old age.
