The Max-Planck-Institute tries to convey its work and the results of his research to a broad audience. Regular news on science results, projects and people at the institute are supplemented by a variety of events both in-house and elsewhere.
Every two years, the institute participates in the "open house" event at the Garching campus.
This year's open house took place on Saturday October 21, 2017
This year, the Girls' Day took place on 26th April 2018. As for previous events, the MPE invited girls of 14-16 years, to learn more about the work at an astronomical institute.
