Mexican Science Day


Building Knowledge without Borders

07 Nov, 09:00 AM to 02:00 PM / Public, English
Mexican Embassy in Germany, Klingelhöferstraße 3, 10785 Berlin
Mexican Science Day – Building knowledge without borders, will bring together German and Mexican Scientists to present the outcomes of their joint research projects.

The Mexican Science Day (MSD) will be held at the headquarters of the Mexican Embassy in Germany within the framework of the Berlin Science Week (1-10.11.2018). The objective of this event is to join German and Mexican scientists of the Max Planck Institutes (MPI) in order to have an interdisciplinary dialogue and to present the outcomes of the most relevant research projects to the scientific community, civil society and students. Considering the importance of the Berlin Science Week and the outstanding scientific and academic cooperation between Mexico and Germany, the MSD aims to strengthen this relationship, as well as to encourage the creation of associated groups between the Max Planck Institutes and Mexican Research Centres in the fields of neuroscience, astronomy and social sciences.

The Large Millimeter Telescope Alfonso Serrano (or Gran Telescopio Milimétrico Alfonso Serrano) is the world´s largest single-dish steerable millimetre-wavelength telescope designed specifically for astronomical observations in the wavelength range of 0.85 – 4mm. This binational project between México and the United States of America represents the largest and most complex scientific instrument constructed in México. Situated on the summit of Volcán Sierra Negra at an altitude of 4600 meters, the LMT has begun its exploration of the physical processes that lead to the formation and evolution of planetary systems, stars, black-holes and galaxies thoughout the 13.7 billion year history of the Universe.
  • The MSD program will include lectures given by
    Dr. Rainer Mauersberger & Dr. Gisela Noemí Ortíz León of the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy
    Dr. Axel Börsch-Supan and Dr. Diana López-Falcón from the Max Planck Institute for Legislation and Social Policies
    Dr. Peter Mombaerts and Dr. Tania Rosas Pérez from the Max Planck Institute Neuroscience Research Unit
