Kiel is a strong centre of science and research. Four universities and excellent research facilities characterise the face and the dynamism of the City of Kiel.
First-class scientific institutions are spread throughout the whole city; freedom for thought and experimentation develops in creative proximity to research and development, industry, life and work.
This freedom forms an ideal basis for forward-looking ideas and a home for innovative companies and university start-ups.
Back in 2011, the City of Kiel, Kiel University, Kiel University of Applied Sciences, the Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design and Kiel’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry entered into a cooperation agreement.
A wide range of joint projects has been established since then to promote the city, industry and universities and there are more waiting in the wings: for instance, the highly innovative mobility project CAPTin Kiel, which is also being funded by the Federal State of Schleswig-Holstein.
