Member of the Alumni Association 

On 25 July 2014, the association for alumni, friends and patrons of the MPQ was founded. The charitable association supports research and scientific activities at the MPQ by focussing on two goals in particular:

  • Cultivating and strengthening the connection between the institute and former employees
  • Promoting scientific communication between the departments of the MPQ with colleagues on the Garching Campus with special emphasis on encouraging young scientists

The association offers financial and organisational assistance for events serving these purposes and hosts discussion or presentation events involving former employees. There are also plans to organise regular alumni meetings and a Christmas symposium, to which employees and alumni will be invited.

Membership requests, inquiries and event proposals can be submitted via e-mail to

Alumnus of the Communication Network maxNet of the MPG 

With the new communication platform „maxNet“ of the Max Planck Society this is rather easy: just register and shortly afterwards you will receive an e-mail with your login which will allow you to access the internet portal. The new communication platform "maxNet" is a way for you to get in contact with old friends and colleagues or keep up to date with current events at MPQ and MPG.
