To commemorate 50 years of bilateral relations between Germany and Singapore, TUM Asia partnered with the German Academic Exchange Service (­DAAD) to host a series of research talks on key challenges in the industry, titled “DAAD – TUM Asia Speaker Series”. The speaker series aim was to gather high-level and prominent public speakers from Germany and Singapore in their respective fields of expertise, who are able to share first-hand information on addressing current issues.

In the month of August, the first two speaker series were revealed to be “Renewable Energy” and “Cybersecurity”. The participants were able to be given new insights on hot topics of the industry and addressed by the speakers on the opportunities and challenges. The continuous exchange of knowledge in Science and Engineering is one aspect that Germany and Singapore has enjoyed over the years, positively contributing to the successes of both countries.

Through the upcoming speaker series to be held later in 2015, both the students and public will be able to benefit through this platform and obtain a comprehensive overview of current issues within the industry.
