What our HITS researchers are doing during corona times as well as the latest research on collagen – those are the topics of our new edition of the HITS newsletter. In the second installment of the new series “behind the scenes”, the garden staff reveals the secrets of our beautiful garden. Read this and more in the second edition of “The Charts”, which is now available in print and online.
HITS, the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, was established in 2010 by physicist and SAP co-founder Klaus Tschira (1940-2015) and the Klaus Tschira Foundation as a private, non-profit research institute. HITS conducts basic research in the natural, mathematical, and computer sciences. Major research directions include complex simulations across scales, making sense of data, and enabling science via computational research. Application areas range from molecular biology to astrophysics. An essential characteristic of the Institute is interdisciplinarity, implemented in numerous cross-group and cross-disciplinary projects. The base funding of HITS is provided by the Klaus Tschira Foundation.
