Green Talents wanted! Are you willing to take up the challenge of making the world more sustainable?

29.05.2013
Since 2009, the Green Talents Competition of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research is annually searching for up-and-coming scientists in the field of sustainable development.

Selected as one of the 25 awardees you are invited to visit the hot spots of German sustainability research and establish a unique network with peers and experts. Deepen your relationships by returning to Germany for a funded three-month research stay at a facility of your choice in 2014. The deadline to submit an application is the 09 June 2013.

Time is running out, 09 June is nearing, and the opportunity to apply for the Green Talents Competition of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is closing soon. As a reminder: the “Green Talents – International Forum for High Potentials in Sustainable Development” annually offers 25 outstanding young researchers an exclusive access to German R&D.

A high-calibre jury of German experts from academia and industry honours the winners for their original ideas and excellent research merits in the field of sustainable development. An interdisciplinary approach is favourable, which is why applicants from all disciplines contributing to sustainability research are welcome.

Selected as a “Green Talent”, the winners are invited to a two-week science forum in Germany, taking place in the fall of 2013. Here they will gain a deeper insight into state-of-the-art research conducted at some of the top locations in sustainable development and meet with experts from their respective fields in individual appointments. On top of that, the winners have the chance to establish long-lasting relationships with German partners and experience an inspiring new work environment when they return for a research stay of up to three months the year following the forum.

Detailed information and a link to the online application tool are available on the Green Talents website http://www.greentalents.de. Please submit your application by 09 June 2013. Incomplete or late submissions cannot be processed and will be disqualified. Watch the 2013 Video http://www.greentalents.de/498.php.

Green Talents is an initiative of the BMBF. The competition is organized and accompanied by the Project Management Agency of the German Aerospace Center.

The Project Management Agency of the German Aerospace Center (Projektträger im DLR) is a specialized service provider for the facilitation of research, innovation and education. The covered spectrum of topics ranges from environment, culture, sustainability, health, education and key technologies to innovation and research transfer. With around 900 employees and the management of 10.200 projects as well as over one billion Euros of research funds, the ‘Projektträger im DLR’ is the largest institution of its kind in Germany. The agency supports the federal ministry with the implementation of research programmes and additionally works for the European Commission as well as other public institutions and private customers.

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
