Press & Public Relations

The Press and Public Relations team brings research results, personalia and other news from the Center to the public. We are the interface to the media and advise researchers on all questions of science communication and on public appearances or interviews. Our School Lab offers courses for students of all grades as well as teacher training. We work according to the guidelines of good science PR.
