The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology features a large number of working groups that cover almost the entire width of water research, including natural, engineering and social sciences.

The objective of the working groups at KIT is to bundle these manifold capabilities in order to contribute to the solution of fundamental problems in water research.

In teaching, water plays also an important role: Several bachelor's and master's degree programs with a strong link to water topics are offered at KIT.
