Activities and programmes

With a comprehensive range of activities and programmes, the DPG aims to increase public and especially youth interest in physics issues and thus raise awareness of their diversity and great benefit for our society today.

Auch darum gehören Sie unserem Verein an. Was einige nicht wissen: Die DPG lebt von der hervorragenden Mitarbeit Ihrer engagierten Mitglieder.mehr...

175 years DPG

175 years of the "German Physical Society" are enough reason to celebrate an astonishing history: What began in 1845 with six young scientists from the colloquium of Gustav Magnus as the "Physikalische Gesellschaft zu Berlin", became the "Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft" with meanwhile about 60,000 members.mehr...

Meetings

Meet, exchange, further education - the DPG promotes the transfer of knowledge! Scientists share their knowledge with you at the DPG meetings. Numerous physicists take advantage of these opportunities year after year. The DPG network, decades of organisational experience and an open ear for all the concerns of the community guarantee the consistently high quality and topicality of these events.mehr...

Support , further education and training programmes

Promoting young people's interest in physics and supporting future physicists are central concerns of the DPG. You can find an overview of corresponding programmes here.mehr...

Lecture series

The promotion of the exchange of knowledge and science as such is a core concern of the DPG. For this reason, the DPG regularly organises lecture series with different focal points. On the one hand, aspects from industry and business or the school system are addressed, while on the other hand, lectures are given by women in physics or on socially relevant topics.mehr...

Competitions

In addition to competitions for schoolchildren who enjoy physics, the DPG also offers competitions which are more aimed at physics students. There are also competitions from other organisations which the DPG supports as a physics driving society.mehr...

Science festivals and shows

For all people who enjoy physics or are curious by nature, several science shows and the science festival Highlights of Physics are organised every year.mehr...
