10th IGSSE Forum

Smart cooperation - science and technology in, with and for society

Adding new perspectives to research, sciene and engineering was this year´s meeting overarching leitmotif. Starting off with reports by IGSSE Focus Areas and the poster competition, the frame of our graduate school´s scientific work was addressed, paving the way for the first-time cooperation of two interdisciplinary institutions at TUM.

Professors and docotoral researchers of TUM´s Munich Center for Technology in Society (MCTS) had prepared an inspiring program comprised of lectures, workshops and work sessions that set the participants off to re-think their work with regard to its societal implications. Keywords like responsibility, participation or mediation - to new only a few - do now complement the awareness of this year´s participants.

We were also very happy that several alumni seized the opportunity to share their experiences with preparing a career after the doctorate. With a professor, a CTO of a start-up company, two project managers working  in industry and two postdocs, the variety of careers mirrored the broad spectrum of opportunities of our alumni.

We are all looking forward to the 11th IGSSE Forum in 2017! Dates will be announced on this website later this year.
