Scientists and guests at the Institute should be able to concentrate fully on their research projects. To provide them with the best possible support, the MPIDR has established a wide-ranging and highly efficient research support infrastructure. This includes an IT-Department, who are responsible for the whole IT infrastructure and for helping scientists with the technical implementation of their research projects; a library, with staff who offer support in the acquisition of information; a graphic team, who assist scientists in preparing presentations and in the construction of graphs for publications; as well as a team who are responsible for the organization of events, including workshops and meetings.

The Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR) in Rostock is one of the leading demographic research centers in the world. It's part of the Max Planck Society, the internationally renowned German research society.
