With this event we would like to foster the communication between the research groups of e-conversion at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (LMU) and industrial companies. We want to elaborate how to explore, initiate and deepen possible collaborations and synergies between your company and our research network.
