Environmental Lecture Series of TUM's Student Coucil provides impulses for transformation

Paths to a sustainability university

To counter the climate crisis, fundamental societal change is just as indispensable as groundbreaking technological innovation. Universities, as places of research and transfer, have an outstanding role to play in this. On May 31, in a fishbowl format entitled “The Role of Universities in the Climate Crisis and Climate Policy,” members of TUM discussed how this role can be shaped. The event is part of the Environmental Lecture Series organized by the Environmental Department of TUM‘s Student Council in the summer semester 2023.

Digitalization on the rise

Studying agricultural sciences at the TUM

Technological progress has always changed working conditions in agriculture. While it was the new tractors in the early 20th century, the topic of digitalization now plays a much greater role. The topics of sustainability, animal welfare and resource conservation have also gained in importance. The School of Life Sciences at the Technical University of Munich has adapted to this dynamic by appointing a total of 12 new professors in recent years and creating new specialized professorships.
