November der Wissenschaft 2023
The November of Science at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute) and the Institute for Gravitational Physics of Leibniz Universität Hannover with seven exciting events
November 2023 will once again become a month of science for more than two weeks, offering insights into Hannover as a university and science location between November 1 and 19. The Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute) and the Institute for Gravitational Physics of Leibniz Universität Hannover are taking part and invite you to seven events between dark matter, physics and science fiction, mankind’s largest observatory, planet-laying “spiders” and an interdisciplinary look at gravitational-wave astronomy. Lectures will be offered simultaneously as on-site and as online events. We look forward to seeing you!

November der Wissenschaft
The November of Science is a project of the Initiative Wissenschaft, in which all eight Hannover universities and colleges, the Fraunhofer ITEM, the Leibniz Institute for Applied Geophysics, the Studentenwerk, the Volkswagen Foundation, the regional business development agency hannoverimpuls GmbH and the state capital of Hannover are involved. The format has been held every two years since 2008.
