Visit Geriatronics in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Munich and Garching
Garmisch-Partenkirchen is easily reachable from Munich by train (1.5 hours) or car (1 hour). The center of Garching is easy to reach from downtown Munich with the subway line U6 or via the Autobahn.
Garmisch-Partenkirchen is the perfect district to develop service robots for the elderly
Garmisch-Partenkirchen (GAP) offers an ideal environment to develop service robots for the elderly. The district has the largest elderly population in the Free State of Bavaria. The Bavarian State Statistical Office forecasts the already higher proportion of older people will continue to increase over the next 20 years. Besides, Garmisch-Partenkirchen offers a network of local doctors, clinics, nursing homes, and a magnificent view of the Alps.
Research Center Geriatronics
Munich is the innovation hub for robotics and artificial intelligence in the Free State of Bavaria
Munich hosts technology companies, innovative high-tech incubators at interdisciplinary interfaces, and excellent scientific institutions such as the Munich Institute of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MIRMI) of the Technical University of Munich (TUM).
The TUM MIRMI research center enables cutting-edge interdisciplinary research with more than 30 already established or newly appointed professors and state-of-the-art laboratory infrastructure in Munich.

Garching constitutes the center of natural sciences and technology at TUM
Garching north of Munich hosts the departments of Physics, Chemistry, Mechanical Engineering, Mathematics, and Informatics at TUM. The campus is networked with other important research institutions such as Max Planck Institutes, the supercomputer center (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences, the European Southern Observatory, and institutes of LMU Munich. Geriatronics researchers test telemedicine solutions by placing GARMI in Garmisch-Partenkirchen and the dual-arm system PARTI in Garching.
