Commemorative colloquium for Nobel laureate E. O. Fischer

Saturday 10.11.2018, 10:00 - 18:00


Friedrich von Thiersch Hörsaal im Hauptgebäude der Technischen Universität München Arcisstraße 21 80333 München 

During its own anniversary year TUM is also remembering the 100th birthday of one of its most prominent students and professors.

With only a short interruption, Ernst Otto Fischer, winner of the 1973 Nobel Prize for chemistry, was associated with Technical University of Munich from the very beginning of his studies in 1941 until his retirement as professor emeritus in 1984. As a researcher he enjoyed the highest respect around the world and received numerous scientific and public honors. He was also a member of German and international scientific academies. His students gave birth to the “Fischer School”, including twelve department Chair holders and a legion of renowned industrial chemists.

These scientists of importance around the world are being commemorated with a colloquium at Fischer's former faculty. The current TUM president Wolfgang A. Herrmann, himself a Fischer student and direct successor to the department Chair, will open the event. Lectures will highlight Fischer's importance, in concert with a small exhibit.
