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.Contact:

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
