Center for Life Science Management & Policy (CLSMP)


The Center for Life Science Management & Policy (CLSMP) is an interdisciplinary center that brings together researchers from management, economics, and the social sciences, whose research addresses the social, economic, and political implications of life science research and innovation. Relaunched in 2020 the center fosters interdisciplinary dialogue, research, and teaching that supports, enables, and reflects on the growing role of life science innovation and a bio-based economy for contemporary societies. The center connects School of Management researchers located at three different campuses within TUM: the Life Science Campus Weihenstephan, the TUM Campus Straubing for Biotechnology and Sustainability, and the Main Campus in Munich.


Past events

  • Amid rising challenges such as from climate change and the Covid-19 pandemic, resilience becomes an increasingly important concern. In our search for ways to bolster resilience, interdisciplinary approaches can combine perspectives to create more robust approaches. In its upcoming symposium, the CLSMP aims to bring together different disciplinary perspectives – chiefly economics, management, policy, STS – on resilience in food and health systems.

  • The first Symposium after the relaunch of the CLSMP aims at bringing together all its members for a virtual exchange about their ongoing interests. Through presentations from different fields with the Center – economics, management, policy, STS – we will facilitate exchange across the disciplines and explore potentials for interdisciplinary collaborations.
