Open House Day at research campus Garching

The research center Garching is inviting to the annual open doors day. More than 30 institutes and facilities open their doors on Oktober 21, 2017, from 11 am to 6 pm. With more than 6000 employees and 15,000 students, the research center Garching is one of the biggest centers for science, research and teaching in Germany.

Beside the Technical University of Munich (TUM), institutions like the Max-Planck-Institute, the Ludwigs-Maximilian-University (LMU) and the Bavarian Academy of Science are located in Garching among many other institutes and companies.

Once a year the staff of the Garching Research Campus invites visitors to experience the myriad and oftentimes unique research work up close and personal. Open will be facilities like the world’s most versatile neutron source, the tandem van de Graff particle accelerator, the fusion reactor at the Max Planck Institute of Plasma Physics and the inner workings of the SuperMUC supercomputer.

Student initiatives will present the world’s most efficient electric vehicle, a newly designed glider that made its maiden flight only a few days ago, autonomous model cars and numerous other projects.

Alongside interactive experiments and guided tours, the Open House Day will host an array of talks in which scientists elucidate their work. The EUROfusion consortium is hosting the German premiere of the documentary film “Let There Be Light” in Garching. ITER scientists and the protagonist Mark Henderson will be available for a Q&A session following the premiere.
