Are You a Green Talent?
Join the Competition and get the chance to visit the hot spots of sustainability research in Germany
Our planet is facing the rapid depletion of natural resources, increasing environmental contamination and major changes in the earth atmosphere. To overcome these global challenges, Germany as a frontrunner in sustainability research strongly believes in international cooperation. Especially the creativity and innovativeness of young scientists is called for.
This is why the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is now holding the 5th round of its prestigious “Green Talents – International Forum for High Potentials in Sustainable Development”. The competition under the patronage of Minister Professor Johanna Wanka annually awards the 25 most outstanding minds worldwide. Hailing from various research disciplines, the winners are honoured for their original solutions for a more sustainable future.
Selected by a high-ranking jury of German experts, the “Green Talents” will be invited to a two-week science forum, touring Germany in the fall of 2013. This visit will not only grant them a unique access to some of the country’s hot spots of sustainable development but also allows the participants to exchange ideas with peers and senior scientists. In addition, the awardees will have the chance to present themselves to experts of their choice and discuss their work with them in individual appointments.
The year following the forum, the winners are invited to return to Germany for an additional research stay of up to three months at an institute or company of their choice.
With previous awardees from 30 different countries, the “Green Talents” build a network of outstanding young researchers, renowned experts and top-class facilities that is unparalleled.
