The Max Planck Center for Complex Fluid Dynamics celebrated the 2nd general meeting at the end of January 2018 at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz. The meetings are intended to communicate our latest developments and start new projects and collaborations. The meeting counted with 60 participants from all working teams.
The MPC celebrated its kick-off meeting with a two-day meeting in the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization in Göttingen in mid June 2017. The aim of the MPC meetings is to encourage collaborations among the different institutes involved in the Max Planck for Complex Fluid Dynamics and strengthen the already existing ones. If synergy is the key in this newly-founded research center, interaction is the key of the meetings.
The opening of the Max Planck Center for Complex Fluid Dynamics counted with the participation of Mr. Victor van der Chijs (President University of Twente), Prof. Dr. Martin Stratmann (President of the Max Planck Gesellschaft), Prof. Dr. Detlef Lohse (Physics of Fluids group, Univ. Twente), Prof. Dr. Eberhard Bodenschatz (Director of the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization) and other personalities as Prof.dr. Thom Palstra (Rector Magnificus University of Twente), Mr. Sander Dekker (State Secretary of Education, Culture and Science), Mr. Dirk Brengelmann (Ambassador of Germany in The Netherlands), Mr. Eddy van Hijum (Member Executive Council Province of Overijssel).
