History of the Max Planck Society

The Research Program “History of the Max Planck Society” (Geschichte der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, GMPG) has emerged from Department I and its work in the historical epistemology of scientific institutions. Initiated by the President of the Max Planck Society (MPG) Peter Gruss the program assumed its work with the approval of President Martin Stratmann in June 2014. Jürgen Kocka (Berlin Science Center), Jürgen Renn, Carsten Reinhardt (Chemical Heritage Foundation, Philadelphia) form a board with Florian Schmaltz as research director.
