The BCP is Europe's largest corporate publishing competition, with more than 700 submitted publications annually. In the category "non-profit/associations/institutions", the MaxPlanckResearch magazine was awarded the silver medal. The jury was composed of 140 renowned experts from the world of journalism, art direction, marketing, corporate and internal communication and print as well as direct marketing.
In addition, MaxPlanckResearch won an "Award of Excellence" in the first International Corporate Media Award. The jury based its decision on the science magazine's impressive "use of images and outstanding visualisation of abstract contents". Overall, the jury said the magazine provided an excellent overview of the Max Planck Society's broad research spectrum.
MaxPlanckResearch is although among the nominees in the category „Magazine“ of the Econ Award 2013.

Greece, Ireland and Portugal avoided bankruptcy only due to a bailout by the European Union and the International Monetary Fund. The stability of the European Monetary Union hangs in the balance.

Physics & Astronomy

Electric cables that routinely conduct electricity without loss – physicists have been motivated by this idea ever since superconductivity was discovered 100 years ago.

Biology & Medicine

Research into epigenetics is a rapidly growing field. A recent conference at the Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology in Freiburg shed light on the reasons.

The advances made by Werner Seeger and his team in the treatment of pulmonary hypertension mean that many patients
at least live longer, with a better quality of life.

Materials & Technology

W004 materials technology 072 077 thumb 1311772786
Imagine vehicles that are just a few nanometers large and that clean surfaces or build molecular structures like tiny vehicles at a construction site. To bring this idea, or that of molecular electronics, out of the realm of imagination and into the real world, physicists are investigating the physics of the nanoworld.

Environment & Climate

W005 environment climate 078 083 thumb 1311772787
Huge quantities of dissolved organic carbon are drifting around in the world’s oceans, a ready-made meal for microorganisms. Yet strange as it may seem, they virtually ignore them. Thorsten Dittmar of the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology in Bremen wants to close this and other knowledge gaps in marine research.

Culture & Society

W006 culture society 084 091 thumb 1311772789
The Japanese are far less likely to settle their disputes in a court of law than Europeans or Americans. Is this a product of their mentality? Do they know of better ways of resolving conflict? Or are they lacking in legal alternatives? These are some of the questions being explored by Harald Baum and his colleagues in the Japan Unit at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law in Hamburg.
