Structure of the IMPRS

Our International Max Planck Research School for Advanced Methods in Process and Systems Engineering (IMPRS ProEng) was founded in 2007 and is delighted to be in its third funding period already. The current funding period started in 2019 and will last until 2025.

Partner institutions

IMPRS ProEng Board

Our graduate school is directed by a board composed of all its principal investigators, two representatives of the doctoral researchers and the coordinator. Among them, a spokesperson from the MPI and a vice-spokesperson from the OVGU are elected to reinforce the close partnership between both institutions. They manage and represent the IMPRS, thus, acting as primary contact persons of the school.
