The MPIA Outreach team

A key factor of MPIA outreach is that many of our staff members take an active role in bringing our research and our results to the general public. But more specifically, here is a list of MPIA employees specifically working in outreach.

General inquiries about outreach or public relations at MPIA should be directed to pr@mpia.de (Pössel, Jäger, Quetz).

At any time, a select few of the PhD students with a special affinity for outreach are selected as MPIA outreach fellows. Outreach fellows are traditionally active in the area of guided tours for the public.


MPIA outreach has the support of all institute scientists, and our activities are in close collaboration with Haus der Astronomie - Center for Astronomy Education and Outreach.
