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
