Circular Economy: Too good to go

Circular strategies are intended to create sustainable material and product cycles. Multidisciplinary research groups are developing solutions for the automotive industry. Also in this issue: How Close is the Point of No Return? limatic changes often build up continuously for years, leading to a tipping point that may be irreversible. And: AI systems in medicine must be particularly trustworthy. Patient data can be reliably protected when training algorithms.

How Close is the Point of No Return?

Climate models can show how climatic changes often build up continuously for years, leading to a tipping point that may be irreversible. Niklas Boers and Christian Kuehn are investigating which parameters are particularly relevant for such tipping points.

Building with Hops

The start-up HopfOn wants to produce recyclable, climate-friendly building materials from hops waste.

Circular Economy: Too Good to Go

Circular strategies are intended to create sustainable material and product cycles. Magnus Fröhling and Johannes Fottner are developing methods to analyze and identify critical factors for implementation for example in the automotive industry.

Quantum Sensors for Magnetic Resonance Imaging

A research team led by TUM has developed diamond quantum sensors that can be used to improve resolution
in magnetic imaging.

How Medical AI Can Become Trustworthy

AI systems in medicine must be particularly trustworthy. Daniel Rückert and his research team were able to show how patient data can be reliably protected when training algorithms with mathematical guarantees.

Proteins for Singapore

Singapore wants to produce a third of its food requirements locally by 2030. TUM researchers are helping to develop protein-rich foods based on algae that taste like chicken and have a similar texture and consistency.

Wrap Up Warm

TUM scientists are researching strategies and technology that can make the heat transition a success - from individual buildings to cooperations with local authorities, and from the expansion of geothermal energy to the introduction of digital solutions.

How Can Research Advance Sustainable Transformation?

We ask TUM Vice President for Sustainable Transformation, Werner Lang, what TUM can do to enable the solutions developed for greater sustainability into practice.
