Under the motto of Bringing Politics and Technology Together, the Hochschule für Politik München / TUM School of Governance examines the interactions among politics, the economy, society, and technology, seeking a multi- and transdisciplinary social scientific understanding of these interactions. In order to breath life into this approach, we established in 2017 our signature event Munich Talks. A place for political and intellectual exchanges where scholars, politicians, and policy-makers share their experience and expertise. On March 11, 2021 at 9:30am, we are honored to welcome
The President of the Robert Koch Institute - Prof. Lothar Wieler
Professor Lothar H. Wieler is President of the Robert Koch Institute in Berlin, the national public health institute in Germany. A veterinarian by training, Professor Wieler has focused his research on zoonotic diseases, that is, infections that are transmitted between animals and humans, which account for many newly emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases. On March 11, he will be our guest under the motto:
A Virtual Conversation with RKI-President Prof. Lothar Wieler in Pandemic Times.
The event will be moderated by Prof. Dr. Ulrike Protzer (Director of the Institute of Virology at TUM) and Prof. Dr. Eugénia da Conceição-Heldt (Reform Rector of the Hochschule für Politik München).
