TUM International pledges to contribute to training one million deep tech talents in Europe by 2025

TUM Inter­na­tio­nal is hap­py to announ­ce a new part­ner­ship with the EIT Deep Tech Talent Initia­ti­ve, a pio­nee­ring pro­gram­me that is skil­ling one mil­li­on peo­p­le within Euro­pean deep tech fields by 2025. TUM Inter­na­tio­nal has signed a pledge to con­tri­bu­te to the EIT Deep Tech Talent Initia­ti­ve by deve­lo­ping talent across sec­tors across Euro­pe and bey­ond.

Deep tech inno­va­tions – cut­ting-edge tech­no­lo­gi­cal solu­ti­ons com­bi­ning fields of sci­ence and engi­nee­ring in the phy­si­cal, bio­lo­gi­cal, and digi­tal sphe­res – are indis­pensable in addres­sing the most pres­sing glo­bal chal­lenges. Howe­ver, Euro­pe lacks the talent and skil­led labour force neces­sa­ry to pro­per­ly levera­ge the new tech­no­lo­gies to enable its green and digi­tal tran­si­ti­on. The EIT aims to address this gap, in line with the Euro­pean Commission’s New Euro­pean Inno­va­ti­on Agen­da, by deve­lo­ping a strong deep tech talent pool across Euro­pe.

To address the mis­si­on of trai­ning one mil­li­on indi­vi­du­als in deep tech befo­re 2025, the EIT laun­ched the ‘Pledge for Deep Tech Talents’, which is a vehic­le for part­ners and spon­sors to con­tri­bu­te to the deve­lo­p­ment and deli­very of the initiative’s cour­ses and trai­ning. The Pledge gathers public and pri­va­te orga­niza­ti­ons, indus­try repre­sen­ta­ti­ves and cham­pi­ons, aca­de­mic part­ners, edu­ca­ti­on pro­vi­ders, and Mem­ber Sta­tes in sup­port of the aim of the initia­ti­ve.

TUM Inter­na­tio­nal, as a sub­si­dia­ry of the Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­si­ty of Munich, will con­tri­bu­te to achie­ving the goal of trai­ning one mil­li­on talents in deep tech fields by lever­aging its eco­sys­tem of edu­ca­ti­on, trai­ning, and indus­tri­al part­ners to ups­kill and res­kill across sec­tors.
