Palm Beach County wants to establish a Max Planck Institute in Florida
Date:9/13/2007

st-growing university in the U.S., will be a key partner in educating junior researchers and will provide the land for the new construction.

First Institute on American Soil

"We met with incredible support and enthusiasm for our research in Florida, not only on the business and political front, but also in the private sector," says MPS President Peter Gruss. "Florida offers a particularly dynamic environment for outstanding basic research." If the State were to now follow the positive vote of the County and also agree to provide funding for the institute, specific contract negotiations could get under way and the institute could take up its work as early as 2008. The institute would eventually have three departments in which 135 employees from all over the world could carry out their research. At the same time, the Max Planck Society wants to offer a visiting scientist program and provide lab space for internationally renowned researchers to carry out their work.

"The Max Planck Florida institute would give us an independent foothold in the world's most important country for science," says Peter Gruss, who views the negotiations in the U.S. as part of a wider internationalization of the Max Planck Society. "We want to export the Max Planck success model and step up our international activities in Europe, the U.S. and Asia." In this context, forms of cooperation can range from partner institutes all the way to full-fledged Max Planck Institutes.
