"Green Talents" Award at the 6th BMBF Forum for Sustainability

04.09.2009
On 9 - 10 September 2009 the 6th BMBF Forum for Sustainability subtitled "Research for Sustainability - One Step Further" will take place in Hamburg.

The event also marks the closing of the "Green Talents" competition: The prize will be awarded to 15 young scientists from across the world whose research is making a long-term contribution to resolving global challenges such as climate change, diminishing energy resources and large-scale environmental pollution. At the Prototyp-Museum Hamburg, they will present their creative and innovative solutions in the field of sustainability.

In 2009 the award was offered for the first time to outstanding scientific talents in the field of environmental technology and will be presented to the winning researchers at the 6th BMBF Forum for Sustainability by Prof Dr Frieder Meyer-Krahmer, State Secretary to the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

The conference also marks the start of the new BMBF framework programme for Research for Sustainability. After five years of successful FONA research, the programme provides new thematic priorities, strengthens international collaboration and calls for an even closer interlinking of fundamental and applied research.

The 6th BMBF Forum for Sustainability is settled at the interface of science, industry, public authorities and politics. The conference aims at presenting best-practice examples, exploring new solutions and fostering the network of the researcher community. The conference opening with the "Green Talents" awards ceremony and the thematic parallel sessions will be completed by the open final conference of the BMBF national research programme "Sustainable Forestry".

On-site registration for the 6th BMBF Forum for Sustainability will be offered at the registration desk.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
