The Munich Institute for Astro- and Particle Physics (MIAPP) hosts several topical workshops in astrophysics, cosmology, nuclear- and particle physics per year. Each workshop lasts up to four weeks and serves as a center for scientific exchange. MIAPP workshops include seminars, organized by the coordinators of the workshop, and provide a stimulating platform for informal discussions, collaborations and creative thinking. For every workshop about 30 international scientists will be invited to attend together with Munich-based researchers. A minimum stay of two weeks is required. External researchers receive financial support to participate in the workshops.
The institute is part of the Excellence Cluster „Universe“ and is embedded in the academic environment of the physics departments of both Munich universities, the local Max Planck Institutes and the European Southern Observatory (ESO). It is located at Garching Research Campus.
