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.

Online seminars

A selection of scientific events currently takes place as video conferences or online seminars. New creative formats support our members in bridging social distances. The good thing about this is that in this way, significantly more people have the chance to participate. So: Don't wait and see, but participate!mehr...

DPG Industry Talks

The Industry Talks, a regional series of events organised by the DPG's Arbeitskreis Industrie und Wirtschaft (AIW), are initially aimed at all physicists working in industry outside universities and research institutions, but are also popular with the general public. The industry talks offer forums for the exchange of experience on topics of physical research, the transfer of scientific findings into applications and current industrial topics, and they promote networking.mehr...

DPG Teachers' Talks

Teachers of physics often have few other colleagues interested in physics in their working environment at schools, so that it is difficult to have a professional exchange or an exchange about special methods in physics lessons. The DPG Teachers' Discussions aim to provide a framework for networking here. The DPG Teachers' Talks are currently held at three locations in Germany, often in cooperation with local universities. In most cases, they consist of an evening lecture followed by a snack for discussion and exchange.mehr...

Lise-Meitner-Lectures

Lise Meitner was born in Vienna and worked in Berlin for over 30 years. In 1939 she delivered the first physical-theoretical explanation of nuclear fission. She died in Cambridge (Great Britain) in 1968. In her honour, the Austrian Physical Society (ÖPG) and the German Physical Society (DPG) have established the "Lise Meitner Lectures" (LML), which took place for the first time in 2008.mehr...

Max von Laue lectures

In 2000, the DPG initiated a lecture series in honour of Max von Laue. The physicist and Nobel Prize winner, who was President of the German Physical Society from 1931 to 1933, was extraordinarily active in the field of human rights between 1933 and 1945. The Max von Laue Lectures take place within the framework of the Annual Meetings and are given by scientists who are distinguished by their strong political or social commitment.mehr...

Physics in everyday life in the Magnus-Haus Berlin

In the series of events "Physics in Everyday Life", the physical background of modern applications, technologies or devices that are widely used in everyday life, but also physical phenomena of nature are explained in an understandable way.mehr...

Scientific evening lectures in the Magnus-Haus Berlin

The regular scientific evening lectures focus on current topics in physics that are explained in a way that is understandable to the general public. Speakers are renowned scientists from university or non-university research.mehr...

Parliamentary evenings

With Parliamentary Evenings, the German Physical Society offers the Members of the German Bundestag an opportunity to inform themselves about current scientific findings, current applications or future technical developments in discussions with independent, renowned scientists and young researchers on a topic of current interest in the Bundestag with physical references.mehr...

DPG Technology Transfer Forum

With a few exceptions, the transfer of knowledge and technology (KTT) from universities and research institutes to industry and vice versa still plays a mostly subordinate role today.mehr...
