"Coffee with Max Planck" seminar series

Welcome to our “Coffee with Max Planck” seminar series! Starting Jan, 14th group leaders from the MPIE’s four research departments will hold weekly lunch-time seminars on their hot-topics.

The seminars target early career researchers and those aspiring to be - from postgrad to postdoc, who are affiliated to one of the following institutions: EPFL, Grenoble Inp, KU Leuven, TU Delft, Imperial College, King’s College, UCL.

A “Coffee with Max Planck” seminar combines a 45min online-seminar by one of our group leaders, with a chance of applying for a 1,000€ travel award. The travel awards will give you the chance to visit the MPIE, experience our academic infrastructure, present your research and receive mentoring from one of our group leaders. Seven travel awards each worth 1,000€ will be awarded. Details on the application process will be given during the seminars.
