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: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
