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 breathe life into this approach, we established in 2017 our signature event Munich Talks. On December 17, 2018 we are honored to welcome
