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: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...

Im Focus: Quantum-physical Model System

Computer-assisted methods aid Heidelberg physicists in reproducing experiment with ultracold atoms

Two researchers at Heidelberg University have developed a model system that enables a better understanding of the processes in a quantum-physical experiment...

Im Focus: Glacier bacteria’s contribution to carbon cycling

Glaciers might seem rather inhospitable environments. However, they are home to a diverse and vibrant microbial community. It’s becoming increasingly clear that they play a bigger role in the carbon cycle than previously thought.

A new study, now published in the journal Nature Geoscience, shows how microbial communities in melting glaciers contribute to the Earth’s carbon cycle, a...
