Dear all,
our global community is challenged by SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. We are amazed by the number of creative solutions and solidarity that we encounter in our daily lives. Prohibition of meetings, travel restrictions and worry for our guests renders carrying out our programs difficult, if not impossible. As a result, we postponed the second, third, fourth and fifth program and are constantly monitoring the situation to make sure that the situation is safe enough to host upcoming programs.

As you can imagine, a workshop center without guests is a rather sad place and hence we are eagerly awaiting the day the MIAPP building comes back to life.

All the best & stay safe

the MIAPP team.





The Munich Institute for Astro- and Particle Physics (MIAPP) hosts several topical programs in astrophysics, cosmology, nuclear- and particle physics per year.

MIAPP is a centre for scientific exchange

The scientific framework of the program is organized by renowned scientists in the field of the program focus. They organize the schedule and create a stimulating platform for informal discussions, collaborations and creative thinking together with the program participants.
