about karlsruhe.digital

Digitalization brings radical change. Now is the time to set the right course for the future! Karlsruhe is aware of the opportunities and challenges of the digital transition.

The karlsruhe.digital initiative symbolises the Karlsruhe principle: short distances, unbureaucratic support and quick networking. This principle enables the location to fully exploit the potential of digitalisation and to connect it as an interdisciplinary topic with other fields of expertise.

We look forward to further expanding this unique IT cluster in the coming years!
