The HEiKA Graduate School on Functional Materials is integral part of the Cluster of Excellence 3D Matter made to Order (3DMM2O), which is a collaboration of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Heidelberg University (Uni HD). It pursues an interdisciplinary approach through conjunction of natural, engineering and sciences.
Since 2011, KIT and the University of Heidelberg have combined their complementary competencies in the HEiKA Research Bridges (formerly known as Heidelberg Karlsruhe Research Partnership) in six specific research fields, the so-called research bridges, in order to increase synergies and enhance national and international visibility.
The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, briefly referred to as KIT, was established by the merger of the Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe GmbH and the Universität Karlsruhe (TH) on October 01, 2009. KIT combines the tasks of a university of the state of Baden-Württemberg with those of a research center of the Helmholtz Association in the areas of research, teaching, and innovation.
Founded in 1386, Heidelberg University, a state university of BadenWürttemberg, is Germany’s oldest university. Firmly rooted in its history, the University is committed to expanding and disseminating our knowledge about all aspects of humanity and nature through research and education.
The training of young academics is one of the core tasks of universities and is a crucial contribution to the sustainability of our Society. The support of young scientists is therefore also firmly anchored in the respective mission statements of the HEiKA partners...
