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.
