Welcome to the Institute of Applied Geosciences (AGW) at KIT, founded in 1825. Our innovations in teaching and research strive for a sustainable use of the subsurface on GeoEnergy, Groundwater, RawMaterials and Storage. The institute consists of eight chairs and has a collegial board of directors, represented by an executive director.
