MPIfG and Sciences Po a Big Success
The Max Planck Sciences Po Center on Coping with Instability in Market Societies (MaxPo), which was inaugurated in 2012, will continue its research work through 2022.
After an evaluation process, MaxPo's funding was enthusiastically renewed for a further five years. An outgrowth of many years of collaboration between the MPIfG in Cologne and Sciences Po in Paris,
MaxPo examines the impact of increasing liberalization, technological advances, and cultural change on the stability of industrialized Western societies.
The center is funded in equal parts by the Max Planck Society and Sciences Po and was originally funded for five years. With its Max Planck Centers, the Max Planck Society aims to facilitate exchange between Max Planck Institutes and their international partners and achieve research results with a combination of complementary methods and new topics.
