Information for visitors
The public relations office is the institute's central point of contact for all questions regarding the institute and its scientific work.
If you are looking for answers to specific questions, seeking general information, or searching for contact details of scientific experts, please let us know – we are here to help.
Another task is the organisation of tours around the institute and its laboratories for various visitor groups.
Every year the institute participates in the Night of Science of the Goethe university on Riedberg campus, regularly in June. There is also a Girls' Day 2021 every year for girls from twelve years and school class 7.
The public relations office also regularly publishes press releases detailing the research at the institute as well as other news and activities.
For Girls' Day 2021:
Unfortunately, the Girls' Day 2021 cannot take place.
It is hoped that it can take place again at the institute on 28 April 2022.
For Night of Science 2021:
We will be there with videos with our researchers.
In summer 2020, we recorded a video about the virtual Night of Science 2020, which informs about our research:
Night of Science
On a Friday in June every year: We offer lectures and visits.
The visits are limited to a minimum number of participants and can only be booked online at Night of Science
Our Girls' Day is limited to twenty participants. Two experiments in the laboratory and an exploratory walk through the Riedberg campus are planned.
Requirements: from class 7 and minimum age 12 years.
Conferences and Scientific Events
Visitors are always welcome! We would be pleased to plan a visit and/or a lecture on our research for you.
Excursions through our technical facilities
Excursions through our laboratories and technical facilities inspire pupils and students again and again to our research topics. The focus is mostly on electron microscopes. It should be noted that we have no school laboratory and no "International Research School".
