“#TUMISummer created an ideal networking environment and gave the opportunity to expand the basis of experts and facilitate common engagement in urban-development projects. (…) #TUMISummer was a powerful driver of positive and inevitable changes! I can’t thank enough for that.”

Viktoriia Naumenko, Transport Analyst Dornier Consulting International GmbH, Ukraine

“The emphasis on communication and how it needs to adapt to the different target groups was the most important conclusion that I drew from #TUMISummer School (…). I definitely recommend the experience to anyone who is thinking about participating because it goes beyond the technical aspects of mobility and delves into the more human factors, and obviously interacting with people from all over the world is a unique feature of the #TUMISummer School.”
