Third-party Projects

Scientific research projects funded through the basic Max Planck Society budget can be found on the web pages of our departments and research groups. In addition, the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry pursues collaborative research projects (listed below) that are competitively acquired from third parties, e.g. European Commission (EU), Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
