Established in 1948, the Max Planck Society is an independent German science organization with 83 research institutions across Germany and abroad. Core priorities include life sciences, natural sciences and social and human sciences. More than 21,000 people work and conduct research at one of its institutes. Approximately 8,000 lab staff are students. Apprenticeship programs provide training for hundreds more German young adults in clerical, electrical engineering, metalworking and information technology professions.

Projects range from a global climate measurement campaign and the operation of a particle accelerator to studies that will inform the development of a future electron microscope based on quantum physics. The society’s institutes regularly open their scientific labs, libraries and workshops to the public. Tours, school lectures, panel discussions and exhibits, coupled with Max Plank Research, the society’s science magazine published three times a year, provide general insight into research activities, findings and real world applications.
