Collaboration and Innovation
At the Institute of Nanotechnology (INT) we collaborate on cross-disciplinary projects with organizations in industry and academia throughout the world, with a focus on innovation.
Through the supra-regional network program NanoMat, we collaborate with over 40 partners in industry and academia, initiating and supporting research projects and maintaining contact with people in business, politics and the public sector.
Various facilities and research projects at the INT are coordinated in close collaboration with the Kalrsuhe Nano Micro Facility (KNMF), a large-scale open-access facility.
The Battery and Electrochemistry Laboratory is jointly funded by the KIT and BASF SE. Its research focus is on developing components and materials for electrochemical energy storage devices such as the lithium ion battery.
We operate two joint laboratories with the Technical University of Darmstadt. These laboratories conduct research on a variety of nanomaterials and nanocarbon materials.
The INT actively partners with and founds other institutions around the world, including the Herbert Gleiter Institute of Nanoscience in Nanjing, China, the Lehn Institute of Functional Materials in Guangzhou, China, and the Helmholtz Institute in Ulm, Germany.
