TUMint at UIIN Conference in Amsterdam, June 13–15, 2022

TUM Inter­na­tio­nal was par­ti­ci­pa­ting at the Uni­ver­si­ty Indus­try Inno­va­ti­on Net­work (UIIN) mee­ting in Ams­ter­dam. It was an inspi­ring con­fe­rence on indus­try-aca­de­mia enga­ge­ment — valo­riza­ti­on over com­mer­cia­liza­ti­on. What we took away from it…

The most important ques­ti­ons of the future seem to be:

1) Which role uni­ver­si­ties play in the future?
🎓 Talent engi­ne
🎓 Dis­co­very rocket
🎓 Life part­ner
🎓 Launch pad
🎓 Home base

2) What are future working skills?
💿 digi­tal liter­acy & inter­ac­tion => vir­tu­al col­la­bo­ra­ti­on
💿 agi­le work
💿 digi­tal lear­ning & self initia­ti­ve
💿 crea­ti­vi­ty
💿 entre­pre­neu­ri­al action
💿 adap­ta­bi­li­ty & per­se­ver­ance

3) How to advan­ce uni­ver­si­ty-indus­try enga­ge­ment in order to dri­ve insti­tu­tio­nal chan­ges?

It looks like we are on a good track with our part­ners from KUTAISI INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY and SIEMENS RESEARCH AND INNOVATION ECOSYSTEM.
The three days of ide­athon, inter­ac­tion and inno­va­ti­on tog­e­ther with Mag­da Magrad­ze and Nata­scha Eckert were very inte­res­t­ing and enri­ching.
