Other members of the MPIfG include the external scientific members and research associates.
External scientific members are nominated by the Institute and appointed by the MPG after a rigorous selection process. As leading scholars who have a close and long-standing connection with the Institute and its research, they play a crucial role in strengthening international collaboration and the MPIfG’s wider research network.
Another important part of the MPIfG’s research network are its research associates, who are scholars working in the social sciences at institutions in Germany and other countries worldwide. They work closely with the Institute in research and teaching through research collaborations, the Partner Groups, and the IMPRS-SPCE doctoral program.
