Welcome to the website of the International Max Planck Research School "Functional Interfaces in Physics and Chemistry" (IMPRS) workshop 2018.
The workshop will take place at Ringberg Castle close to Tegernsee in the Bavarian Alps February 19 - 23, 2018.
It is fully organized by the IMPRS students from the Fritz-Haber-Institute der Max-Plank-Gesellschaft, Freie Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and Universität Potsdam.
The topic of this workshop is Leaving the Ivory Tower: From Models to Reality. A wide range of topics will be covered, ranging from the microscopic level (electronic structure, reaction mechanisms, ...) to macroscopic applications (catalysts, functional materials, engineering applications).
