The open-source software of the two former Technical University of Munich (TUM) scientists Florian Kohlmayer and Andreas Lehmann, enables researchers to integrate a range of different medical data points for a patient, securely store and easily retrieve them. In 2016, this led to the Bitcare start-up.
The Amazon rainforest stores large amounts of the climate-damaging greenhouse gas carbon dioxide. However, deforestation, agricultural expansion and rising temperatures are pushing the storage capacities of the tropical forest to a limit. It is unclear how long the forest will remain a carbon sink. An international team is working together with the Technical University of Munich (TUM) to answer this question.
It has been 10 years since the Technical University of Munich (TUM) launched the TUMonline integrated campus management system. In the latest report by the German federal government's Commission of Experts for Research and Innovation, TUMonline has now been highlighted as a best practice example. In this interview Dr. Hans Pongratz, the Senior Vice President for IT Systems and Services (CIO) at TUM, explains why the digitalization of processes at third-level educational institutions is an ongoing process and how blockchain technology will be used to make certificates forgery-proof.

Like humans and animals, plants defend themselves against pathogens with the help of their immune system. But how do they activate their cellular defenses? Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have now discovered that receptors in plant cells identify bacteria through simple molecular building blocks.
In the near future we may see electric vertical take-off aircraft taking passengers to their destinations as aerial taxis high above traffic jams. But the flight system controls for these aircraft still represent a major challenge. Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have applied their enormous expertise in this area to develop a control technology which is now being used in the prototype V600 from AutoFlightX.
Shortly before the curtain drops on the hit HBO show “Game of Thrones” (GoT), students attending a computer science seminar at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) embarked on an unusual scientific mission: predicting which character has the best chance to sit the coveted Iron Throne.
