Annual Projects

Projects funded by our Supporting Members

Beyond the annual dues, our Supporting Members each year give to a featured project that would otherwise not be in the realm of realization. Hereby, they strikingly underline their relation to the Max Planck Society. We are honored to present you a selection of past projects here.
