The Max Planck Society encompasses multiple disciplines in areas such as Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Earth Sciences, among others, as well as projects related to climate research and international space missions.

The Jury has prized the European vocation of the Society, its interdisciplinary approach and the close cooperation among research centres and universities around the world with which the Max Planck network works, generating teams of highly qualified young scientists engaged in cutting-edge fields of research carried out worldwide.

The Max Planck Society operates under the ideals of excellence in scientific and technological research at a global scale.
