Karl9 – Science hub for technology and society

Technology affects almost all areas of our daily lives. Where technology meets society, opportunities, risks, and numerous questions arise: Do we want to be cared for by robots? How will we get around in the future? Where do we safely store nuclear waste? We find answers to these questions through dialogue between science and society. This is where ITAS research comes in.

The “Karl9 – Science hub for technology and society in the immediate vicinity of the institute building is a space where this exchange with you, the citizens, takes place – in the form of exhibitions, discussion events, and workshops. In the barrier-free hub, we provide information about our research during fixed opening hours and welcome questions and discussions in a relaxed atmosphere.


"Tell me, ITAS"

"Tell me, ITAS" is a series of events organized by ITAS at Karl9 – Science hub for technology and society. Researchers move their workplace to Karl9 for an afternoon and answer your questions about their research topics.

You can find the current editions of "Tell me, ITAS" in the ITAS events calendar
