Take part in the exclusive MUCx – Munich Experiences Program and support the ICIS TUM/Bentley Travel Grant Program!

What is MUCx?

MUCx offers ICIS participants a series of exclusive events to experience Munich—events that go beyond typical sightseeing activities. These events cover three categories: Industry & Tech, Culture & Sport, and Startups. More events will be added to the current offering, so check back often!

ICIS participants will be able to buy tickets for MUCx events through a silent auction starting in late September. We will set aside a limited amount of tickets for PhD students at discounted rates. See details below.

How do I bid?

How does MUCx support the ICIS TUM/Bentley Travel Grant Program?

Surplus that is generated from MUCx will be used to fund travel grants for PhD students and young scholars from developing countries through the ICIS TUM/Bentley Travel Grant Program.
