Welcome to KCETA

The KIT Center Elementary Particle and Astroparticle Physics (KCETA) bundles experimental and theoretical research and education at the interface between astronomy, astrophysics, elementary particle physics and cosmology. Large scale international projects for knowledge-driven fundamental research form connecting elements of the various activities. KCETA is a unique platform for studying the smallest building blocks of matter and their interaction as well as their role in the evolution of the largest structures in the Universe.

The KIT Center can rely on the successful tradition that is lived for many years in particular in the Center of Excellence for Particle and Astroparticle Physics CETA and in the biggest German graduate school.
