Max Planck Institute celebrates double anniversary

Prominent guests look back on 10 and 100 years of scientific excellence at Neues Schloss

The Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS) emerged ten years ago from the Max Planck Institute for Metals Research (MPI-MF), which was founded in 1921. At a hybrid event on Thursday, the MPI-IS directors celebrated the 10- and 100-year double anniversary at one of the most beautiful venues in all of Baden-Württemberg, Stuttgart’s Neues Schloss. Together with the Minister President of Baden-Württemberg, Winfried Kretschmann, and the President of the Max Planck Society, Prof. Dr. Martin Stratmann, the directors Michael Black, Siegfried Dietrich, Christoph Keplinger, Katherine Kuchenbecker, Bernhard Schölkopf, Giesela Schütz and Metin Sitti viewed with pride what both institutes have achieved. They reflected on the impressive 100-year history and looked back at the people who have made both institutes world-renowned in their respective fields of research. Meanwhile, staff, alumni and friends of the institute were able to watch the celebrations from their screens.
