Exchange and support for those impacted by earthquakes

Meeting space opens at TUM

A new meeting space at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) now provides psychological support to those affected by the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria. At the proposal of the student initiative TUM.ai, a corresponding range of support services is now available on the TUM city center campus.

Every day from 1:00 to 7:00 pm individuals affected by the earthquakes can meet there to share their experiences, network and offer one another support and consolation. The space also promotes contact and networking among helpers. Co-organizer Nektarios Totikos says: "We want to offer uncomplicated help without hindrances. Our motto is: 'Come by, let's have a Çay!’"

The meeting space is located on the ground floor of the building at Gabelsbergerstr. 45, room 002, directly across from the StudiTUM House. The support service will continue until March 8, with a possible extension if necessary.

The service range is supervised by members of TUM.ai. The student initiative is actually dedicated to the topic of applying Artificial Intelligence in industrial contexts. However, the group's highly international character motivated its members to provide direct aid to those affected by the earthquakes.
