Humboldt-Rankings 2012 – Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces among the top three best
27-04-2012: Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces numbers among the non-university research institutions as one of the three best addresses for foreign scientists in Germany
According to the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces (MPIKG) is one of the high-end addresses for foreign junior scientists and Humboldt awardees in Germany. The foundation informed that from 2007-2011 the institute became third place (weighted rankings) and second place (absolute rankings) among the non-university research institutions. In total 50 research stays of foreign laureates and scholarship holders were counted for the rankings.
The excellent standing of the institute is particularly remarkable because it was founded only 20 years ago in the new eastern states of Germany. Therefore the international visibility and networking had to be established in a rather short period which was obviously successful.
The Humboldt Rankings comprise weighted rankings for both universities and non-university research institutions. However, as each institution has its own particular strengths and weaknesses in the various disciplines, the Humboldt Rankings also differentiate according to four major academic areas: Humanities and Social Sciences; Life Sciences; Natural Sciences and Engineering Sciences. In the case of stays at non-university research institutions this differentiation is only applied to the absolute figures.
