Research Bridges

Forth Rail Bridge, Edingburgh

The largely complementary set-up and long-standing cooperation of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) with Heidelberg University are two of the main criteria leading to the establishment of so far six comprehensive key areas as HEiKA research bridges.

Stimulated and moderated by their respective directors, mutual exchange on scientific direction, new research topics and perspectives on joint research projects are being discussed in workshops and other joint meetings.

HEiKA Projects

are joint research projects between scientists from Heidelberg University and KIT, aimed at deepening and expanding cooperation between the two institutions in the areas of the HEiKA research bridges. Selected through an annual project call, each project team receives funding of up to €80,000 for a maximum of one year.

The HEiKA Project Funding program was established in 2013 and runs annually starting in January. The call for projects begins in May of the preceding year, with project selections made by October.
