This year, the company outing of the representatives of Fraunhofer IGCV and the utg chair went to northern Italy. As part of this, the scientific staff were guests of two companies from the foundry sector. They reported on extremely interesting encounters and a "fruitful" scientific exchange.

Around 40,000 trade visitors came to the 26th International Technology Fair for Sheet Metal Working in Hannover from 24 to 28 October 2022 to find out about the current status and news in their industry. As coordinator of the SPP2013, utg's representatives presented the ongoing projects on the topic " Opportunities of residual stresses in forming technology".

"Targeted use of forming-induced residual stresses in metallic components". is the title of the priority program SPP2013.

Successful first workshop of our new international partnership with the Finnish Aalto University

EuroBLECH 2022

We are also at the start, at the 26th International Technology Fair for Sheet Metal Working, the EuroBLECH. Under the motto "Innovations as the key to tomorrow's sheet metal working", we will present the 12 projects of SPP2013 at the EFB joint booth.

On 8 and 9 August 2022, we were once again guests at the House of Bavarian Agriculture. As every year, utg staff met for a two-day seminar to discuss strategic and scientific topics.

On August 01 and 02, 12 schoolgirls from 7th to 9th grade were able to get to know production technology at TUM. As part of the MINT experience at the university, the "TUM discoveres" were able to visit utg on Monday afternoon.

Established years ago, as a meeting place for the exchange of information between scientists from research assistants to professors, industry representatives and alumni, the popular get-together finally took place again at the utg on 21 July 2022 after a long forced break.

In 2022, we were able to really clean up in the doctoral prizes. Three dissertations were awarded prestigious prizes. All three are endowed with € 5,000. On 1 July, the first Day of Engineering and Design #DayEDTUM (formerly Faculty Day), the three prize winners were presented with their awards in a ceremony.

We are very happy to have been at this year's LOIFT in the Mechanical Engineering Building! After a break of three years, it was very nice to get in touch with many students again. The participation of almost 40 chairs and professorships provided a good insight into the diverse research topics of the School of Engineering and Design at TUM. We were able to show at our booth with exhibits and our…
