August 05, 2019

Milad Isaac receives the Max Planck Apprentice Award for outstanding achievements in professional education at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Tübingen. Since September 01, 2016, he has been in an apprenticeship in precision engineering. High technical skills, quick comprehension and rapid learning of the German language led to the excellent completion of his training. Isaac joined the Max Planck Society through the People for People programme of the Max Planck Foundation. The initiative makes a contribution to people who have had to leave their native country.

"Right from the beginning, Milad showed a very high level of commitment and interest in all aspects of his vocational training. Integration went off without a hitch. We are very proud of him," says a delighted instructor Markus Scheu. This was also due to Milad Isaac's exceptional will to integrate, who has been greatly appreciated by his colleagues right from the start.

The award´s certificate was handed over by Prof. Dr. Peter Dayan, Managing Director of the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics. “I am delighted that we can give Milan Isaac a professional future at our institute and that he is now starting his work as a precision engineer,” Dayan comments.

The award, which exists since 2007, is a special recognition of the Max Planck Society for unique professional and academic achievements and special social commitment during apprenticeship. Up to 20 of these recognitions are awarded nationwide by a selection committee in the 86 institutes.

The Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics offers various forms of vocational training, in addition to the supervision of master's theses, dissertations and post-doctoral studies.
