Munich School for Data Science @ Helmholtz, TUM & LMU


Strong partners form a new Graduate School

Digitized research produces enormous amounts of data these days. This increasingly complex flood of data contains great potential, for example for biomedicine. However, big data needs to be controlled and interpreted in order to become usable. To this end, the next generation of researchers will soon be trained at the newly founded Munich School for Data Science @ Helmholtz, TUM & LMU (MuDS). The new Munich School for Data Science (MuDS) aims to integrate data science with various disciplines such as biomedicine, plasma physics, robotics and earth observation. In the Graduate School, the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has joined forces with the Helmholtz Zentrum München (HMGU), the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP), the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the Ludwig-Maximilian-Universität München (LMU). With the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) and the Max Planck Computing and Data Facility (MPCDF), two large computing centers are on board as associated partners. One of the co-coordinators of the MuDS on the part of the TUM is Prof. Hans-Joachim Bungartz.
