In January 2022, the Max Planck Institute for Biological Intelligence, in foundation, emerged from the MPI for Ornithology (MPIO) and the MPI of Neurobiology (MPIN). Until its official establishment, anticipated for the year 2023, the institute will be legally represented by its two predecessor institutes.
Together, we are dedicated to the investigation of biological intelligence – the evolved ability of animals to cope with a constantly changing environment and to find ever new solutions to life's challenges.
