TUMO Berlin to open its doors in autumn

In October 2020, TUMO Berlin will open its doors in Charlottenburg, a historic community in western Berlin, providing a tuition-free education to 1,200 students.

The signing ceremony of a memorandum of understanding establishing a TUMO center in Berlin took place on January 21.

“Today’s event proves that a country’s geographic location or the richness of its natural resources does not determine its future. Rather, it is a country’s human potential and the richness of its ideas, which have no boundary,” said Deputy Prime Minister of Armenia Mher Grigoryan.

Member of KfW’s executive board Ingrid Hengster stated that KfW considered promoting education one of its central priorities.

“With TUMO, we are adopting an innovative project, from a country that KfW also cooperates with in development, to promote the digital education of children,” she added.

Students at TUMO Berlin will have 10 learning targets.

“The educational program that KfW and TUMO are launching in Berlin is an ambitious one. It will cover some of the fastest-growing fields in technology and design such as artificial intelligence, computational graphics, algorithmic music and include numerous opportunities to explore and prepare for future careers,” said TUMO CEO Marie Lou Papazian.

TUMO Berlin will join the growing network of international centers such as TUMO Paris and Beirut. Plans to establish new centers in Moscow, Tirana, Tokyo and other cities around the world are in progress.
