9th Max Planck Symposium for Alumni and Early Career Researchers "The future of education around the world"
The Max Planck Symposium is an intensive, two-day career conference serving as a platform to connect international Max Planck Alumni and Max Planck Early Career Researchers of all disciplines and Institutes. The topic of every symposium is suggested and realized by the participants themselves, who are then supported by high level experts and invited guests. We will be conducting an exclusively onsite symposium in 2024. All participants have the opportunity to participate in exciting onsite meeting formats.

Official registration is closed. Please send us an email if you’d still like to register.
