MPG trainee award for Dennis Cziasto
During his apprenticeship from September 2008 to February 2012, Dennis Ciasto has been involved in many different scientific projects at the MPE; in addition, he held the function as youth representative. He also supervised many interns, which allowed them to get an insight into the work of the institute.
Each year, the MPG awards up to 20 trainees whose “performance is a role model for other apprentices." Some 600 boys and girls do their apprenticeship at a Max Planck Institute. About 80 per cent of the Max Planck Institutes offer about 30 different training programmes. The very high quality standard of this education is demonstrated by the fact that the apprentices are often among the best in their final exams.
The trainee award comes with a bonus of 750 € as well as a certificate, which was presented to Cziasto Dennis by MPE-director Ralf Bender in the presence of the head of the training workshop, Richard Mayr.
