The occasion is the 175th anniversary of the DPG and the 100th anniversary of its British sister IOP. The event will take place on 30 November in English. All interested parties are invited, prior registration is required.

To celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the IOP and 175th Anniversary of the DPG we are bringing together a panel of specialists from the UK and Germany to discuss the climate and renewable energy, with specific reference to the commitment both countries have made to have net-zero carbon economies by 2050. The aim of the event is to bring together the physics community to showcase the latest scientific research in this area and inspire discussion about climate change using evidence based research and expertise.
