The School is hosted by the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research, located on Göttingen Campus. The Partner Institutes at the University of Göttingen are the Institute for Astro- and Geophysics at the Faculty of Physics and the Geoscience Center at the Faculty of Geoscience and Geography.
The School is guided by an Executive Committee (Speaker: Prof. Dr. Sami K. Solanki) and run on a daily basis by the Coordination Office (Scientific Coordinator: Dr. Sonja Schuh, Assistant: Johanna Wagner-Farssi).
