Munich Talks

Under the motto of Bringing Politics and Technology Together, the Hochschule für Politik München / TUM School of Governance examines the interactions among politics, the economy, society, and technology, seeking a multi- and transdisciplinary social scientific understanding of these interactions. In order to breathe life into this approach, we established in 2017 our signature event Munich Talks.
