Guided Tour Max-Planck-Institut for Iron Research in Düsseldorf

Date & Time

Date 15 December
Time 15:30 - 21:00
Event type


After Berlin, Munich and Stuttgart, the next event will take place in Düsseldorf. Around 60 EPFL alumni work and live in the most western region of Germany, which has a strong economical position in Europe. This is not surprising, since the province of Nordrhein-Westfalien has more than twice the population of Switzerland.

The Ruhr region north-east of the metropolitain area Cologne-Düsseldorf was traditionally known for its steel industry and its huge factories. Time have passed but the silent revolution continues with high tech materials. This time, we will have a look at small scales in the Max-Planck Institute for Steel Research.

After the Institute, we will make an other visit, this time at the famous christmas market in the old town. A table will be reserved in a restaurant nearby to restore our energy later in the evening.

Special address to the alumni from Cologne: You are expressly welcome to participate, as you may help me to organise an adequate “revenge” soon.
