Transfer Activities

Transfer Positions allow for the transfer of knowledge and technology from our center to the broader industry and society.

«MCML bundles the best AI and ML research at LMU and TUM. We strongly believe in a human-centric view of the field, where ML is used for advancing scientific, social and economic progress. Applicability, explainability and transfer of knowledge are core goals of MCML.»

Innovation Lab Coordination

In our student Innovation Lab at LMU Munich, students teams spend a semester working on practical ML and data science projects, usually in cooperation with industry or domain science partners.

The innovation lab coordinator is responsible for acquiring and selecting projects from industry partners and external research labs, managing and executing the course, allocating the necessary infrastructure, and contributing to the supervision of the student groups. We are always looking for project partners from industry and academia. The Innovation Lab is an excellent opportunity for you to get smart and eager students to work on your data science and machine learning projects.
