Max Planck Society wins 2013 Príncipe de Asturias

//13/06/26

The Max Planck Society has been honoured with the 2013 Príncipe de Asturias award on International Cooperation.

The Max Planck Society for the Advancement of Science was founded in Europe in 1948 and currently maintains a network of more than 80 research institutes. Guided by a global vision for excellence in scientific and technological investigation, the society conducts basic research in the public interest, in a diverse range of disciplines pertaining to natural sciences, social sciences and humanities. It also works on various projects including climatic research and major international spatial assignments.

Judges on the Principe de Asturias panel valued the society’s European focus and interdisciplinary approach. They were also impressed by the close cooperation between research institutes and universities working with the Max Planck network across the globe. These relationships have given rise to teams of highly qualified, dedicated young scientists, pioneering the most cutting-edge research areas in the world.
