Scientists meet Scientists

TUM-IAS Wednesday Coffee Talks

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the TUM-IAS Wednesday Coffee Talks will be streamed online.

Professor Michael Molls and the TUM-IAS team invite the scientists of TUM and their guests for a virtual coffee each Wednesday. Just log in to the online TUM-IAS Coffee Talk after lunch between 13:00 - 14:00 CET and have a virtual coffee with us, meet other scientists and listen to a short talk (10-15 mins) on a recent major TUM publication or issue – aimed specifically at a non-expert audience.
