Teaching activities

The Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion offers annual courses for students, doctoral students and post-docs. Regular programs are our annual summer school, our participation in the Bioinorganic Workshop at Penn State University, and the education of students at our International Max Planck Research School - IMPRS RECHARGE.


Summer School

Since 2013 the MPI CEC organizes an annual summer school for master's students, doctoral students and post-docs. Since the Summer School is organized alternately by the various departments of the institute and partly in cooperation with the departments of the MPI für Kohlenforschung, the thematic focus of the one-week program changes every year.


International Max Planck Research School

The training of young academics is essential for the future of science and research. Therefore, the Max Planck Society launched a unique postgraduate training program – the International Max Planck Research Schools. The MPI CEC was able to persist in a highly competitive environment and hosts the IMPRS-RECHARGE.


Penn State Workshops

Since 2010 Penn State organizes a regular bioinorganic workshops.
In about 9 days, graduate students and post-docs have the chance to learn the numerous techniques used to carry out research within the field of bioinorganic chemistry.

MPI CEC scientists regularly support the workshop of Pennsylvania State University. The next event will take place in 2020.
