The atmosphere was exuberant and the joy was great: Alin Benice Schöne and Luca Domann were presented with the Max Planck Society's apprentices award at a ceremony. Of the more than 170 Max Planck Society graduates each year, 19 were honored this year with the Max Planck Apprentice Award for their outstanding achievements, great commitment or extraordinary diligence.
"We are incredibly proud that the work of two highly motivated and committed apprentices at our institute has once again been recognized and rewarded by the Max Planck Society this year," says a delighted Patricia Malkowski, Head of Apprenticeship at the MPI CEC.
Alin Benice Schöne began her apprenticeship as a physics laboratory technician in 2020 and completed it this summer. She is now working as an employed laboratory assistant in the Electron Microscopy & XPS research group of Dr. Walid Hetaba at the MPI CEC.
Luca Domann also started his professional career in 2020 as an apprentice IT specialist in system integration, completed his training this summer and now works as an IT specialist at the MPI CEC.
