5th HERSS summer school

As part of the BMBF-funded network for Higher Education Research and Science Studies (HERSS), in 2019 the Munich Center for Technology in Society of the Technical University of Munich (MCTS / TUM) took over the organization and implementation of the 5th HERSS summer school. Under the headline "Responsible Innovation Cultures", this year's questions focused on the responsible design of innovation processes in the context of science and universities - especially technical universities. The summer school took place at the TUM research campus in Garching from October 14 through 18, 2019. An interactive program of lectures, workshops, discussion formats and trainings brought together numerous experts with around 30 international doctoral candidates and postdocs in the field of "responsibility in research, teaching and development".
