Research meets Industry – Conference on Ultra-High-Speed transportation (March 1 - 2)

Hyperloop: How will the vision become reality?

Start-ups and student initiatives as well as top universities and industry-leading technology companies are working on the ultra-high-speed transportation systems of the future. Now TUM is conducting the first international conference on this topic. Experts from science and industry will come together (virtually), especially to exchange ideas and discuss questions and challenge relating to Hyperloop technology.

Pods from the TUM Hyperloop team have already won Elon Musk's international competition in California several times.

Because of the Corona pandemic, the conference will take place in an online format. The participants will have the opportunity to exchange ideas and discuss key aspects and challenges of Hyperloop technology at sessions on the focus topics "Propulsion & Suspension Systems" and "Demand & Routes" (both on March 1) as well as "System Concepts" and "Infrastructure & Operations" (both on March 2).
