New MPIfG Partner Group founded in Poland
The MPIfG and the Institute for Philosophy and Sociology of the Polish Academy of Sciences have founded a joint international research group in Warsaw. Marcin Serafin will be the new group’s head. Serafin was a doctoral researcher at the IMPRS-SPCE from 2011 to 2015, and until 2016, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the MPIfG in Cologne. The partner group will do research on the social and institutional embedding of economic action, with a focus on the further development of the concept of "fictional expectations." Partner groups are a way to support young researchers from Max Planck Institutes who are returning to their countries of origin. The Max Planck Society cooperates with countries interested in strengthening their research through international cooperation.
