Recording the future since 1907: TM 2.0
TM 2.0 is a scientific online-journal with a great tradition, being the digital resumption of the renowned printed journal „Technische Mitteilungen“ (TM), which was founded by members of three occupational unions – chemists, electrical engineers and mechanical engineers – in Dortmund, Germany, as early as 1907.
Celebrating 110 years in 2017
We are proud to celebrate our 110th anniversary in 2017. Even though the visuals have changed a lot since the early days – as well as the medium: from print to digital – the underlying idea of fostering the exchange of ideas, beneficial for everyone, by issuing an interdisciplinary journal, has not lost any of its significance.
On the contrary: revolutionary at the time when the „Technische Mitteilungen“ was founded, it is today – in a world of rapid change and digital disruption – more important than ever.

Published by Germany´s oldest institution for technical advanced and further education
In the meantime our journal is published by Haus der Technik (HDT), Germany´s oldest institution for technical advanced and further education and one of the leading hosts for seminars, conferences and congresses for senior managerial staff from business, administration and industry.
HDT holds cooperation agreements with several renowned German universities: RWTH Aachen University, the University of Duisburg-Essen, the Westfälische Wilhelms University of Münster, the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms University of Bonn and the Technical University Carolo-Wilhelmina of Braunschweig. Furthermore HDT cooperates with various different research institutions and companies both in and outside of Germany.
Similar to TM 2.0, HDT’s aim has always been to foster the exchange of experiences and know-how as well as to present new discoveries in science and technology. Time and again Nobel laureates like Max Planck, Otto Hahn, Peter Debye, Max von Laue and recently Reinhard Selten und Robert Huber as well as outstanding personalities like Walther Gropius, Ludwig Prandtl, Conrad Matschoß and Oscar von Miller have been amongst HDT’s lecturers. In total HDT disposes of a network of about 5000 reputed speakers.
