The agreement formalizes a number of long-standing research collaborations, opens significant new opportunities and will facilitate student and faculty exchanges between KIT and Mines. With 20,000 students, KIT – located in southwest Germany -- is one of Europe’s leading universities in the natural sciences and engineering.
Ongoing collaborations and joint projects between the two universities range from astrophysics to clean energy research. Natural synergies exist between KIT and Mines in strategic vision and academic strengths, with particular emphasis on advanced energy technologies.
