Freunde der Kolloid- und Grenzflächenforschung e.V.
The institute organizes together with the "Freunde der Kolloid- und Grenzflächenforschung e.V." an annual meeting, which informs about the "Trends in Colloids and Interface Science". It always takes place on the Friday after Corpus Christi (German bank holiday). The next Alumni Meeting will take place on June 21 , 2019.
Within the annual meeting two prices were awarded from 2004-2017 to early-stage researchers:
- Doctoral Thesis Award
- Most Surprising Discovery
From 2018, the MPIKG Presentation Competition was introduced instead. The winner will receive a Travel Award.
The plenary session of the "Freunde der Kolloid- und Grenzflächenforschung e.V. (FKFG)" usually takes place on the evening before the Alumni Meeting in Berlin. The minutes are sent to the members on request.
