  DAAD - TUM Asia Science Lecture - August 23, 3:30pm
  Topic "Industrie 4.0 - A Social, Political & Technological Revolution"
   
 

Beyond the technological breakthroughs that Industrie 4.0 continues to offer, its far-reaching impact on both the social
and political domains cannot be ignored.  Industrie 4.0 will transform the way we live, work and relate to each other. 
Emerging forms of cooperation such as crowdsourcing and flexible work practices will change the traditional organisation
of work. Governments will have to be increasingly involved in taking the lead to drive change and adopt new approaches to
public engagement and policymaking, bearing in mind the accompanied consequences of Industrie 4.0. Hence, it is
important to understand the impact that Industrie 4.0 brings and be prepared for these future changes.

Through sharing from experienced academics and government personnel on Industrie 4.0’s impact on society
and politics, we hope to shed light on how various stakeholders can better prepare themselves to cope with the
impending disruption and understand how current labour policies are framed in Singapore to help the local
workforce deal with the transition.

Postdoctoral Researchers' Networking Tour 2017

 

Perspectives in German Materials Science and Nanotechnology
(25.09.2017 – 30.09.2017)

   
 

Germany offers a broad spectrum of career options for young scientists at universities, research institutions and in industry.
However, those who have never been to Germany and Germans who have been out of country for some time may not be familiar
with recent developments and new opportunities.

Through its Postdoctoral Researchers’ Networking Tour the DAAD offers a new format to provide postdoctoral researchers with
an insight into German science and the job market for highly qualified postdoctoral researchers.

This year’s networking tour focusses on materials science and nanotechnology and includes:

  • On-site visits to universities, research institutes and companies
  • An insight into high level research projects in materials science, nanotechnology, and related research areas
  • Numerous networking opportunities with representatives of business and academia other tour participants.
  • The tour language is English. The detailed planning of the tour is currently in progress and regularly updated information on the
    time schedule and the participating institutions is available here (pdf, 0.2 MB).

 

What we expect:

  • Applicants should have obtained their PhD/doctorate no longer than 5 years ago and have not been living in Germany or affiliated
    to a German institution within the previous 12 months
  • Have been researching in a subject area corresponding to the focus of the tour
  • Have demonstrated high productivity and quality in their scientific work. This should be clearly documented in the list of publications,
    grants, patents and other achievements have a genuine interest in taking the next step in their career in Germany and be able to
    demonstrate this (e.g. former or current cooperation, favourable research or career opportunities, specific career demands)
  • Have exhibited drive and determination, initiative and a willingness to play a role in shaping the future.

What we offer:

A practice orientated and diverse programme to suit the requirements of the participants coverage of programme related
costs in Germany (accommodation, domestic travel, most meals) a lump sum travel allowance if such costs are not borne by a third party.
This will also be provided if the stay is extended by up to five working days in order to allow for additional professional networking.
