Activities and Events

Newcomers coffee meet

This event is held every quarter and it is organized to welcome the newcomers to our institute. The scientists can make a brief introduction and presentation of their work. It is a nice informal setting for the others to get to know them.

International potluck lunch

The international scientists make up more then 50% of the scientific employees at the MPI for Biology of Ageing representing around 25 nationalities. Therefore it is only appropriate that we celebrate the diversity of our institute by sharing different foods from those cultures. The international potluck is held 2-3 times a year and is open to everyone.

Christmas party

This annual institutional event is organized by the rotating department and the administration. It is the largest event of the year complimented by catered food, drinks, entertainment, productions, etc.


Are you interested in some group sport? Once a week the MPI employees have a chance to get together and play some Badminton at a gym near by the institute. It is fun and a great way to let out some steam after a long week. If you would like to participate, please contact : Ulrike.Temp(at)
