KIT was founded by a merger of Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe and Universität Karlsruhe. KIT bundles the missions of both precursory institutions: a university of the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg with teaching and research tasks and a large-scale research institution of the Helmholtz Association conducting program-oriented provident research on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany. The Institute of Technical Physics (ITEP) at KIT is engaged in the whole field of superconductivity, from material and conductor R&D to various applications in energy technology, space and fusion research. All R&D is performed in collaborations with Universities and Industries in national or European consortia.
