We want to inspire young people with enthusiasm for science and science-related professions. To this end, school projects and student internships take place on a regular basis.

The Max-Planck-Society supports female scientists with various programs:

  • W 3 Program for the Advancement of Outstanding Female Scientists in senior positions
  • Minerva-FemmeNet: a mentoring network for female doctoral students and diploma students, for postdoctoral students and those working on their habilitation
  • Option for female scientists to extend a fixed term contract by six months to allow for pregnancy and childbirth
  • Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard Foundation: supports talented young female scientists with children
  • Elisabeth-Schiemann-Kolleg
