The Tsinghua-TUM Talks is an annual event series, as part of the TUM Global Dialogue Series, which was piloted in late 2020 to resounding success. On November 25th, the TUM Beijing Office and Tsinghua Shenzhen International Graduate School (SIGS) will host the third round of Tsinghua-TUM Talks. This year we will focus on carbon neutrality, and invite well-known scholars from the both universities to present their latest research results and discuss the challenges and countermeasures of China and Germany in this field. At the same time, the event will also address how leading universities should promote research and cultivation of talents in the field of carbon neutrality, and jointly confront the global challenges brought by climate change.

Clean Hydrogen to Re-Power a Sustainable Society? A EuroTech DeepDive responding to the EC policy package & UN SDG. 

Clean Hydrogen is at the core of the REPower EU Plan and Fit for 55 package, major initiatives within the European Green Deal and for decarbonizing the EU in a cost-effective way.

REPowerEU is focused on ending the EU's dependence on Russian fossil fuels and fast forward the green transition. The energy transition in Europe will require the contribution of all sectors and all member states. Therefore, universities of Science and Technology like the EuroTech Universities can play a crucial role in rolling out hydrogen as an important part of the diversification of energy supplies.

In the EuroTech deep dive, we would like to offer a platform discussing the different aspects of installing hydrogen: production, handling and usage by including different perspectives: policy, industry and research.

Speaker:

  • Enrico Degiorgis, Policy Officer Clean Energy Transition, DG RTD, European Commission
  • Anja Faße, Head of Professorship Environmental and Development Economics, TUM Campus Straubing
  • Jan Mertens, Chief Science Officer, Engie
  • Grégory Nocton, Vice-President of Chemistry Department, École Polytechnique (tbc)

Agriculture plays a central role in food security; however, the increasing world population and the emergence of new climate risks pose new challenges that call for the design and implementation of innovative solutions. Farmers and other agricultural actors from India and Germany are developing new approaches to generate sustainable increase in production, enhancement of resilience, and mitigation of greenhouse gases.

This session will present insights into case studies from Germany and India that present how smallholder farmers, agribusinesses and financial institutions can play a key role in delivering solutions to address climate change and food security in different contexts.  

Speakers:

  • Prof. Johannes Sauer, Professor of Production and Resource Economics, TUM
  • Dr. Terese Venus, Senior Researcher, TUM
  • Mr. Roberto Villalba, Junior Researcher, TUM
