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 2015.
Join the Green Talents Competition and gain exclusive access to the hot-spots of sustainable development.
Sustainable development is among the most important challenges of our time. Striving to lead an environmentally friendly way of life that conserves resources is essential to preserve our world for subsequent generations. With its top locations for innovation and research, Germany is aiming to reach this goal by intensifying international cooperation. Young minds in particular have the creativity required to spark the lively and successful partnerships of today and the future.
Since 2009, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has held the prestigious “Green Talents – International Forum for High Potentials in Sustainable Development” to promote the international exchange of ideas regarding green solutions. The award, whose patron is Minister Professor Johanna Wanka, honours 25 young researchers from around the world each year. The winners come from various scientific disciplines and are recognised for their outstanding achievements in making our societies more sustainable. The Green Talents 2014 are selected by a high-ranking jury of German experts and are granted unique access to the elite of the country’s sustainability research field. This includes:
- An invitation to Germany in 2014 to participate in the fully funded two-week science forum. While touring Germany, top locations will open their doors to the Green Talents and offer them an exclusive insight into their facilities and projects.
- A chance to present themselves and their work in personal discussions held as part of individual appointments with experts of their choice (during the two-week science forum).
- A second invitation to Germany in 2015 for a fully funded research stay of up to three months. At an inspiring location of their choice, the Green Talents will gain new experiences and advance their professional careers while establishing long-lasting partnerships.
- Exclusive access to the “Green Talents Network” of over 100 high potentials in sustainable development from over 35 countries.
Deadline for submission: 16 June 2014, 12 p.m. CET.

The competition is organized and accompanied by the German Aerospace Center, Project Management Agency European and International Cooperation.
All expenses during the tour as well as the journey to and from Germany are covered by the BMBF.
The Project Management Agency part of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) is 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 Project Management Agency c/o German Aerospace Center is the largest institutions of its kind in Germany. The agency supports the federal ministry with the implementation of research programs and it working for the European Commission as well as other public institutions and customers.

Planet Earth experienced a global climate shift in the late 1980s on an unprecedented scale, fuelled by anthropogenic warming and a volcanic eruption, according to new research published this week.
Scientists say that a major step change, or ‘regime shift’, in the Earth’s biophysical systems, from the upper atmosphere to the depths of the ocean and from...

Nerve cells cover their high energy demand with glucose and lactate. Scientists of the University of Zurich now provide new support for this. They show for the first time in the intact mouse brain evidence for an exchange of lactate between different brain cells. With this study they were able to confirm a 20-year old hypothesis.
In comparison to other organs, the human brain has the highest energy requirements. The supply of energy for nerve cells and the particular role of lactic acid...
In laser material processing, the simulation of processes has made great strides over the past few years. Today, the software can predict relatively well what will happen on the workpiece. Unfortunately, it is also highly complex and requires a lot of computing time. Thanks to clever simplification, experts from Fraunhofer ILT are now able to offer the first-ever simulation software that calculates processes in real time and also runs on tablet computers and smartphones. The fast software enables users to do without expensive experiments and to find optimum process parameters even more effectively.
Before now, the reliable simulation of laser processes was a job for experts. Armed with sophisticated software packages and after many hours on computer...
