Development opportunities at TUM

European Talent Academy

The program is a joint initiative of TUM and its partners Imperial College London (Imperial) and Politecnico di Milano (PoliMi). It supports young research talents in their careers, for example through contacts in politics, the establishment of an EU-wide network and workshops.

About the Academy

TUM Junior Fellows

Our university awards this title to junior researchers who have acquired independent, third-party-funded junior research groups at TUM in highly competitive programs. This allows them to be first reviewers for doctoral projects.
