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.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
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...

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...
