Max Planck Partner Group
More than 70 Partner Groups exist worldwide. They are a useful instrument in the joint promotion of junior scientists with countries interested in strengthening their research through international cooperation, including, for example, India, China, Middle and Eastern European countries, Russia and Argentina.
Partner Groups can be set up with an institute abroad with the proviso that, following a research residency at a Max Planck Institute, top junior scientists (post docs) return to their home country or go to another country and carry out further research on a subject that is also in the interests of their previous host Max Planck institute.
A new partner group has been established between the the Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez (UAI) and the mpilhlt.
This group, headed by David Rex Galindo, formerly a post-doc fellow at the MPIeR and now Professor at the Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez (UAI) in Santiago, Chile, and Thomas Duve, director at the mpilhlt, seeks to identify, analyse and study the various institutions and forms developed to extract indigenous labour and tribute in frontier territories of the Hispanic world from the late medieval period until 1898, when Spain lost the last of its American and Asian colonies.
The collaboration started June 1, 2019.
