Technology Events

Companies are able to experience technologies and trends eyeball to eyeball at the KIT!

As part of the event series RESEARCH TO BUSINESS live companies can get an insight into individual institutions or topics. In the half-day workshop, the scientific employees present their current state of their research and open their laboratories.
This event brings science and economy in direct contact with each other and provides a first basis for future cooperation.

Use the chance to …

  • discover brand-new research of the Karlsruhe institute of technology which could be interesting for your enterprise to discover.
  • get the technologies directly introduced by the scientists who did developed them with the help of lectures or on basis of exhibits.
  • cooperate with institutes of the KIT directly.
  • dive into the world of science during interesting lab inspections and excursions.


The next event:

REASEARCH TO BUSINESS live - power electronics
23rd May, 2017


Please note: The lectures of RESEARCH TO BUSINESS live will be in GERMAN only.

Interested? The registration is now possible via e-mail.

The Speakers

Michael Meißer

Dr. Meisser is postdoc at the Institute for Data Processing Electronics (IPE). He is researching alternative design concepts for power electronic modules. Previously, he was a member of the KIT Light Technology Institute (LTI) in the field of ​​pulse control of plasma sources for the generation of UV light. His focus in research lies in the utilization of copper thick film technology and in the optimization of power modules with regard to their thermal and electrical properties. Particularly, he is examining possibilities to reduce the parasitic inductance of the modules and make the modules more robust.

René Sander

Mr. Sander received his bachelor and master degree in electrical engineering and information technology from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in 2010 and 2012. Ever since, he has been working at the Institute for Electrical Energy Systems and High Voltage Engineering (IEH), where he is pursuing a promotion in the field of HVDC circuit breakers. The focus here is on the investigation of performance-electronic implementation options, taking into account techno-economic aspects.

Fabian Denk

Mr. Denk earned his master's degree in electrical engineering and information technology at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in 2014. Within his promotion at the KIT Light Institute (LTI), he is dealing with the characterization of silicon carbide power transistors and the development of resonant MHz inverters.

Christian Axtmann

Mr. Axtmann obtained his master's degree in electrical engineering and information technology (with a special focus on electrical drives and power electronics) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Since his studies in 2013, he has been working as a research assistant at KIT's Institute for Electrical Engineering (ETI). The focus of his promotion is on new shift topologies for electric drive technology.
