Our Mission

Our mission is to build a bridge between the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), one out of four “Universities of Excellence” in Baden-Württemberg, and the USA, especially the SFBA.
Silicon Valley is home of leading technology and internet companies and global hotspot of the startup scene. We use this atmosphere to raise awareness of the importance of knowledge transfer for an innovative working environment and to build a transatlantic network for innovative high-quality research with future potential.

To achieve this we organize various events in SFBA, Boston and Baden-Württemberg.

The intelligent network from knowledge transfer to transformation
through like-minded communication.
