Enhancing present one-to-one collaborations of TUM and UT Austin chairs to a bigger and more visible scale has been a major aim of the past workshop that IGSSE organised in Munich in January 2017. Eight guests from UT Austin/USA (ICES, School of Architecture, Energy Institute) discussed with IGSSE, MSE, IAS Directors and other TUM professors the options of future common research projects and training programs.

TUM President Wolfgang A. Herrmann was impressed with the ideas and promised to support the efforts of the researchers. The meeting is a first step towards stronger links to one of USA´s top universities. IGSSE has been happy to support a new generation of scientific opportunities!
