The network

The “Astrophysics Network Potsdam” is a cross-institutional specialized alliance of scientific research groups that conduct research and teaching in astronomy/astrophysics in Potsdam. The network encompasses the research activities of three non-university institutions – the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY at the Zeuthen site, the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) and the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute / AEI) in Potsdam-Golm – and two chairs in astronomy/astrophysics at the University of Potsdam.
