Rostocker Ring - The Initiative for Alumni & Friends of the MPIDR


The Rostocker Ring is an initiative that helps friends, alumni, and current members of the MPIDR stay in touch.

Feel free to join the association; it is free of charge. Particularly for young researchers at the beginning of their scientific careers, such as participants in the doctoral schools, the Rostocker Ring offers opportunities to learn more about the demographic community, and to meet experienced scientists and MPIDR-Alumni. Register with us to receive e-mail alerts containing the latest news about the Rostocker Ring and the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research. The directors of the MPIDR, Mikko Myrskylä and Emilio Zagheni, are solely responsible for the Rostocker Ring.


Affiliates of the Rostocker Ring will not have to pay any membership fees. Of course, the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research would be happy if the affiliates of the Rostocker Ring support activities of the Institute or the Rostocker Ring by a donation.

If you would like to make a donation then please contact us.

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.
