The Professorship for Science and Technology Policy (Prof. Ruth Müller) hosted an evening of discussion on the topic of internalization and scientific careers on November 20th.

Prof. Sarah Davies from Copenhagen started the evening with a talk on „Making Sense of Mobility: Precarity and international mobility in the natural sciences“. Her talk was followed by an interdisciplinary panel discussion on “Global Careers? Opportunities and Challenges“.

The purpose of this evening was to shine light on the topic of internalization which is a very important concern at TUM. In this context the professorship staged an interdisciplinary discussion between TUM internal as well as international researchers from the natural sciences, social sciences and humanities. Researchers from Denmark, Singapore and the USA as well as TUM stakeholders and researchers discussed together with an engaged audience the chances and challenges of internalization in scientific careers. Questions about how international and global careers should and can look like in the 21th century are not only of concern to TUM but matter for researchers world-wide. The panel presented a comprehensive expertise on science and technology policy, competition and innovation. During the discussion the panel as well as the audience explored different questions like: How should internalization be organized? What are the challenges and opportunities in the context of rising global mobility? The great interest of the audience and the engaging discussions point to the importance of giving room to larger discussions about the future and organization of science and its work environment.
