The Karlsruhe Research Factory for AI-integrated Production

Optimize established processes - Strengthen "immature" processes: methods - processes - plants

Parallel to the planning and realization, the web presence of the Karlsruher Forschungsfabrik® at the east campus of KIT is being developed here.

On the east campus of KIT, in the immediate vicinity of the Fraunhofer IOSB and the Karlsruhe Technology Park, this research factory is being built on an area of about 4,500 m². Its goal is to quickly bring new, still immature production processes to series production readiness in cooperation with industrial partners.

The "Karlsruher Forschungsfabrik®" is an initiative of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).


The Karlsruher Forschungsfabrik is funded by
