At this year’s “Research in Germany” booth at the world’s most important meeting in physics the German Physical Society (DPG), the Max Planck Society (MPG), the Fraunhofer Society and several German funding organizations will welcome international scientists to inform about research opportunities at German universities and non-university research institutions.

Excellent fundamental research, diverse and distinguished funding institutions and an innovative spirit create a very unique research landscape in Germany in the field of physics. This year's APS March Meeting is taking place from March 5 to March 9 in Los Angeles, California, USA. Representatives from the head office of the German Physical Society, the Max Planck Society, the Fraunhofer Society, the American Friends of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AFAvH), the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the DFG will appear jointly to provide a wide range of information on research and funding opportunities in the country.
