TUM is a member of the EuroTech Universities Alliance which was founded in 2006 by the DTU und TUM. The EuroTech Alliance is a strategic partnership among six technical universities in Europe:
- Danmarks Tekniske Universitet (DTU), Denmark
- Technische Universiteit Eindhoven (TU/e), since 2008, The Netherlands
- École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), since 2011, Switzerland
- École Polytechnique (l'X), since 2018, France
- Israel Institute of Technology (Technion), since 2019, Israel
- Technische Universität München (TUM), Germany
The goal of the alliance is to engage in extensive scientific cooperation and capacity building to jointly find technical solutions to the global challenges of the 21st century.
The EuroTech Alliance promotes dialogue and qualification among doctoral candidates and junior scholars and scientists, who are eligible to participate in the course programs offered by all partner universities. For an overview of current courses, please see the EuroTech PhD Course Database. The TUM Graduate School supports its members’ participation in the subject-specific courses with its Partnership Mobility Grant.
Course participation can be associated with a longer stay at the relevant institution for research purposes. The EuroTech universities have established advising offices for this. Your doctoral candidates are welcome to contact them for assistance:
The GlobalTech alliance was founded in 2009. It is a worldwide network of some of the world’s leading technical universities:
- Imperial College London (UK)
- Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (India)
- Nanyang Technological University (Singapore)
- Shanghai Jiao Tong University (China)
- Technische Universität München (Germany)
- University of New South Wales (Australia)
Like EuroTech, the GlobalTech alliance serves to identify potential approaches and solutions for shared scientific and technical questions. The global approach and dialogue are key elements of the alliance. For further information, please visit the GlobalTech website.
The TUM Graduate School maintains a network with graduate institutions at partner universities at the level of qualification for doctoral candidates, and the institutions work together to develop offerings and exchange formats.
