International Max Planck Research School for Demography
The International Max Planck Research School for Demography (IMPRSD) is Europe's largest collaborative international program of research training in population studies. The School is not a degree-awarding body, but a network of leading researchers who work together to provide a more complete set of high-level courses and associated research supervision than any single institution could offer. The members of the School's Consortium are international experts who are conducting research at the leading edge of demography. Founded in 2000, the School receives core support from the Max Planck Society and the MPIDR. It does not charge fees, and makes available a number of partial and full scholarships to enable students to attend courses. The majority of these courses are offered at the MPIDR in Rostock, while others are given by Consortium members at various locations around Europe.
