For the Max Planck Day 2018, the two Max Planck Institutes from Halle had teamed up to present a section of their respective fields of research to a broad public. In two lectures, they presented to the public the role played in microbiological data and structures both in physics and in social and cultural anthropology.It was the first joint public event of the two institutes since their founding in Halle. The Institute of Microstructure Physics conducted the event in a newly opened large auditorium.

On November 06, 2018 a delegation of ERC grantees of Saxony-Anhalt, the Ministry of Economy, Science and Digitalisation, and the ERC President visited the MPI. Later on that there was a meeting held at the Academy of Sciences Leopoldina that included a discussion of all awardees about future research topics and grant schemes.
