The war in the Ukraine has plunged countless numbers of people into adversity. We at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) stand in solidarity with those affected and are thus launching two aid programs of our own. These programs are intended for researchers from the Ukraine and affected TUM students.
Mariya Gabriel, EU Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, presented the priorities of the forthcoming European Innovation Agenda and the new European higher education strategy during a visit to TUM. The Commissioner participated as a speaker at the European Union Week and emphasized the role of talents and deep-tech start-ups for the future of Europe.
The Technical University of Munich (TUM) is among the 20 best universities in the world for providing students with the education they need for leadership roles in the digital transformation. That is one of the conclusions of the new Digital Leaders in Higher Education rankings prepared by Times Higher Education (THE).
The first step in the move of Technical University of Munich (TUM) electrical and computer engineering to the Garching campus has been completed: the first construction phase of the new building was officially opened on Tuesday evening, May 10. The highly modern building will be the future home to research in electronics and the specialty areas Quantum Engineering and Electric Power Conversion.
The Bavarian State Ministry of Science and Art is supporting the establishment of the TUM Venture Labs with a two million euro contribution. The initiative by the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and UnternehmerTUM, Europe's largest center for innovation and business creation, is an integral part of the Bavarian High Tech Agenda. The goal is to dramatically accelerate the transformation of cutting-edge research into marketable applications. Creating complete ecosystems in important fields of technology, the TUM Venture Labs will function as a model for start-up promotion at German universities.
In "That's my Job", the new career podcast of the TUM Community, graduates of our university talk about their inspiring career paths. Students and other interested people receive tips for starting their careers and learn which concrete steps can lead to their dream job.
A low-cost and easy-to-manufacture lighting technology can be made with light-emitting electrochemical cells. Such cells are thin-film electronic and ionic devices that generate light after a low voltage is applied. Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the University of Turin have now used extensive data analysis to create first-class electrochemical cells from copper complexes that emit blue and white light.
EU Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth Mariya Gabriel will talk about the role of universities and start-ups for deep-tech developments on May 10. The event is part of the European Union Week, which brings together representatives from the world of research, business, politics and media to discuss the future of the EU.
Clara Sabel is studying mechanical engineering at TUM. But since the start of the war, she had been driving in aid convoys to the Polish-Ukrainian border. On the return journey, she carried people fleeing the conflict. With us she talks about what it means to put her own life on hold – because there are more important things to do.
Bavarian universities face growing competition for the best students, scientific talents, and entrepreneurs. Their task is to ensure educational and innovative progress, economic strength, and the sustainability of our social cohesion. This calls for the courage to change, together with the the necessary freedom to act.
Production workers instructed with augmented reality glasses can work much faster than colleagues instructed with analog methods. However, an international study shows that they are less capable of internalizing their tasks and of making suggestions to improve production processes. These insights may help companies when adapting AR applications to their needs and balancing productivity gains against process optimization priorities.
