For the first time in its 60-year history, Germany's internationally acclaimed Max Planck Society is underway with the establishment of a research institute in the United States, called the Max Planck Florida
Building the Bioscience Base in Florida
"Basic research is the key driver of innovation."
The Max Planck Florida Institute is the first Institute the German-based Max Planck Society has established in the United States. In July 2008, the Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners unanimously approved the allocation of $86.9 million to build and operate the Max Planck Florida Institute. The total amount of the investment by the county and its partners in the deal, which includes Florida Atlantic University (FAU), is $94 million. This amount matches the agreement signed in March, 2008 by the Florida Governor's Office of Tourism, Trade and Economic Development to allocate $94 million from the state's Innovation Incentive Fund to bring the research institute to Florida.
