Siemens Research and Innovation Ecosystem Munich

Tog­e­ther with Sie­mens, TUM Inter­na­tio­nal GmbH (TUMint) mana­ges the Sie­mens Rese­arch and Inno­va­ti­on Eco­sys­tem (RIE) Munich, which emer­ged from the Sie­mens Cen­ter of Know­ledge Inter­ch­an­ge (CKI) at TUM. The lead uni­ver­si­ty is TUM.

The Sie­mens RIE Munich is a uni­que eco­sys­tem whe­re today’s chal­lenges are addres­sed col­la­bo­ra­tively with future tech­no­lo­gies. Tog­e­ther with inter­nal and exter­nal stake­hol­ders, inclu­ding uni­ver­si­ties, rese­arch insti­tu­tes, indus­try part­ners, start­ups, and govern­ment agen­ci­es, TUMint is working with Sie­mens to deve­lop solu­ti­ons to the­se chal­lenges.

The Sie­mens RIE Munich com­bi­nes the rese­arch excel­lence of a wide ran­ge of stake­hol­ders and reli­es on a broad, regio­nal and at the same time glo­bal net­work. In addi­ti­on to tra­di­tio­nal con­tract rese­arch, RIE works clo­se­ly with stake­hol­ders on inno­va­ti­on pro­jects and publicly fun­ded rese­arch con­sor­tia, and explo­res num­e­rous other indi­vi­du­al col­la­bo­ra­ti­on for­mats.

In addi­ti­on, the Sie­mens RIE Munich sup­ports talent manage­ment, e.g. through spe­ci­fic men­to­ring pro­grams, and deve­lo­ps cus­to­mi­zed coope­ra­ti­on mecha­nisms bet­ween com­pa­nies and uni­ver­si­ties.
