Since technology impacts do not stop at the boundaries of disciplines or states, we have been working internationally for decades. This includes projects with international partners, for example, from Brazil, the US, India, Australia, Japan, or China as well as an initiative for a global network of technology assessment with members from 22 countries. A senior fellowship program targets international professors and there are also regular guest visits by researchers from all over the world.

ITAS is also a member of numerous important international networks:

At the national level, ITAS is part of the Helmholtz Association’s research fields Energy and Information. In this context, we work together with scientists from other Helmholtz institutions on issues related to the transformation of the energy system and the digital transformation of society.

Within the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), ITAS is connected with numerous institutes and departments. Major activities are the participation in the KIT Centers Humans and Technology, Climate and Environment, and Energy. There are also close co-operations with many faculties in the form of shared projects and jointly supervised dissertations. Prof. Dr. Armin GrunwaldProf. Dr. Dr. Rafaela Hillerbrand and Prof. Dr. Daniel Lang hold chairs at KIT.
