Scientific Events – TUM Forum Sustainability

Various activities of the TUM Senior Excellence Faculty are reflected not only in their commitment to the development of TUM and the associated tasks, but also in a wide range of scientific events. It is here that the variety of interdisciplinary topics addressed by the TUM Emeriti of Excellence in symposia, lectures and other events within the framework of the TUM Forum Sustainability becomes apparent. Many of the events are organized in cooperation with other universities and research institutions and in collaboration with high-ranking national and international scientists, both internally and externally.

The TUM Forum Sustainability is an initiative of the TUM Senior Excellence Faculty in cooperation with the Institute for Earth System Preservation IESP e.V. and the TUM Institute for Advanced Study, founded in 2016. The aim of the initiative is to increase public awareness of the topic of sustainability from an interdisciplinary, scientific perspective and to support decision-makers in business and politics in their sustainable actions by providing specific examples and recommendations for action.
