Bavarian government supports TUM with outdoor laboratory for automated and connected traffic

New test field for connected mobility systems

In the future the Technical University of Munich (TUM) will have its own test field for its mobility research. The facility in Taufkirchen/Ottobrunn near Munich will make it possible to investigate complex traffic scenarios under laboratory conditions. The laboratory will also support research on the interaction of the autonomous traffic systems of the future and their safe and standardized operation. The State of Bavaria is providing financial support to the project.

Pollination in urban habitats requires a diversity of insects

Don’t just look at the bees

Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have found that in the early season, insects such as wasps, beetles and flies play a crucial role in pollinating plants in urban environments. Moreover, for biodiversity that is so important, the food supply is more crucial than, for example, land sealing. This gives gardeners a key role in biodiversity and pollination in urban areas.

Call for applications: TUM's new Agnes Mackensen Program starts in October

Support for woman students and scientists with a non-academic background

Social origin is still a major determining factor in university studies. Only 27% of young people raised in non-academic homes study at university, while the same figure for people who do have an academic background is almost three times as high. In addition, the situation of women at technical universities is traditionally very difficult. The objective of the new Agnes Mackensen Program at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) is to break down these barriers and to foster enthusiasm among more women for university education in STEM subjects.
