Long-term cooperation combining the strengths in politics, technology and society
Leadership Meeting of CEU and TUM
Michael Ignatieff, President and Rector of CEU emphasized “TUM is an extremely promising partner for CEU because of its acknowledged world leadership in engineering science and technology and its strong desire to build and expand expertise in the humanities and social sciences. Based on the joint expertise of the two institutions future joint programs are going to look into the political, societal and ethical challenges and opportunities of new technologies.”
TUM President Wolfgang A. Herrmann said “CEU is a distinguished institution in humanities and social sciences, and we are therefore exploring long-term collaboration that would include the establishment of TUM-CEU faculty positions in Budapest, degree programs, in a unique and unprecedented combination.” He added that “It enhances our vision of human-centered engineering.”
Both parties will meet again in Budapest on May 7 to conclude the discussions and sign a bilateral agreement on the future cooperation.
