Come and join us for our Open Day at HITS on Saturday, 9 July, from 11am-5pm

After four years the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies will open its doors to the public again. Under the overall theme of “Digital Worlds 20.22” the program includes science talks in English and German, presentations and hands-on stations, all showcasing the research of the Institute.

One of the highlights this year will be the guided tours – also in English and German – through the HITS garden.

A free shuttle bus will run from 11am to 5.30pm every 30 minutes between S-Bahnhof Altstadt (Karlstor) and HITS, free parking is available in the car park “Unter der Boschwiese”. Refreshments will be served throughout the day.

About HITS

The Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS) was established in 2010 by the 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 sciences, mathematics and computer science, with a focus on the processing, structuring, and analyzing of large amounts of complex data and the development of computational methods and software. The research fields range from molecular biology to astrophysics. The shareholders of HITS are the HITS-Stiftung, which is a subsidiary of the Klaus Tschira Foundation, Heidelberg University and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). HITS also cooperates with other universities and research institutes and with industrial partners. The base funding of HITS is provided by the HITS Stiftung with funds received from the Klaus Tschira Foundation. The primary external funding agencies are the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the German Research Foundation (DFG), and the European Union.
