About us

The German Physical Society (DPG) is open to everyone: students, professors, pupils, teachers, people working in industry or simply interested in physics. The DPG is a mouthpiece of physics and a contact point for people interested in physics. As a non-profit association, it does not pursue any economic interests. In the DPG, young scientists meet Nobel Laureates, interested people meet experts and young people meet older people. Together, they all form the world's largest physics society.
