Welcome to the Institute for Automation and Applied Informatics

The Institute for Automation and Applied Informatics (IAI) is a research institute of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in the Helmholtz Association (HGF). It conducts research and development in the field of innovative, application-oriented information, automation, and systems technology for sustainable energy systems and complex industrial and laboratory processes. Interdisciplinary working groups are working on integrated systems solutions, whereby all development phases being covered from conceptual design to modeling and simulation, prototyping and practical testing, also under industrial conditions. Novel, reusable methods and tools, which are developed and applied in the context of system design, are further results.

The work of IAI is embedded in the programs Energy System Design (ESD) of the HGF's research field Energy and Natural, Artificial and Cognitive Information Processing (NACIP) and Material Systems Engineering (MSE) of the HGF's research field Information of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the Helmholtz Association of National Research Centres.

The projects at the institute are carried out in cooperation with partners from industry, administration and other research institutions in Germany and abroad. Among others, the institute is involved in projects of the EU, various federal and state ministries, the DFG (German Research Foundation), AiF (German Federation of Industrial Research Associations), and German industry. The institute's staff members are active in a wide range of standardization committees, expert and review committees and programme committees.
