The International Center for Advanced Communication Technologies (InterACT) is a network of leading Research Universities and Institutes of the main economies of the world. It has a dual mission:
- Advanced research on technologies that support and facilitate global communication, cooperation and exchange.
Training/Education of scientists in an environment of scientific excellence, while at the same time providing immersion and experience working in a multicultural and multilingual setting.
When interACT was officially founded in 2004, there were only few cooperations established between professors of the partners. What has began as a small and informal cooperation has now been grown into a lively and permanently growing center. Today more than 40 professors at KIT and CMU cooperate within interACT, see a list with participating professors at KIT or CMU.
