RESET Science School 2020
On January 17, 2020 the second RESET Science School took place at the MCTS. Students in their 3rd semester of the RESET master’s program gave presentations on their experiences during their internships. In seven talks and workshops, the students dealt with current societal issues they encountered while working at established companies, startups, NGOs, and research institutions outside of TUM.
Doing an internship forms a mandatory part of the 3rd semester of the RESET master’s program. It gives students an opportunity to apply the knowledge and competences they acquired during their first two semesters in a field of practice.
The internship also aims to encourage students to critically reflect on practices and developments in economy and science by employing what they have learned so far. The presentations held during the science school were as diverse as the internships. Small teams of two to four students presented and discussed issues related to science communication, European energy policy, responsible innovation, sustainability, smart mobility, and responsibility in infrastructure projects and organizations. Each presentation included one or several case examples as well as some theoretical input, and concluded with a short discussion session.
Christian Ghinea participated in the science school as an external guest. He is a member of the European Parliament for Romania and a member of the Renew Europe party. He introduced himself with a short talk on his agenda, political life, and his take on science and technology policy and subsequently answered a range of questions posed by the students in a Q&A session.
The RESET science school was organized by the students themselves. This included preparing the program, inviting staff und students of the MCTS as well as hosting and moderating the event.
