EU Commissioner Mariya Gabriel speaks at TUM about new strategies for deep-tech innovation.

The EU Commission has recently adopted a new strategy for universities and is currently launching a European Innovation Agenda, which will be focused on deep-tech start-ups and centered around universities, industries and engineering talents. What strategy pursues the EU to promote the success of deep-tech developments? Why are engineering sciences just as important as IT in that regard? What role do universities play in ecosystems capable of delivering the new wave of innovation? How can European start-ups achieve the necessary scale to become major global players? How young people can be actively involved? These and other questions will be answered in the keynote speech “Future of Europe through the prism of education, research, innovation and culture” at the Audimax on May 10, 4:30 pm.


The event is part of European Union Week, hosted by the TUM School of Management and the TUM Speakers Series in cooperation with HEC Paris, HEC Débats and Koźmiński University in Warsaw. In addition to Mariya Gabriel, guests will include former Postbank CEO Wulf von Schimmelmann and Hans-Jürgen Jakobs, Senior Editor of Handelsblatt.
