What is FIT?

FIT stands for "Forschung, Internationales und Transfer" (i.e. research, international info, and transfer).

It is a database for research funding, events, calls and much more, updated daily by members of the University of Kassel and a number of partners from the network. FIT also offers a weekly newsletter, delivering relevant information right to your inbox.

Members of the FIT network can register at and set up a personal profile. With this profile they can search the database including the archive.
