The topic of sustainable development has also been top priority for the Federal Government for many years. Germany is spearheading in sustainability research which is why the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is now holding its fourth Green Talents Competition under the patronage of the Federal Minister, Professor Annette Schavan.
Young international scientists working on cutting-edge projects in research fields related to sustainable development are invited to apply for “Green Talents - The International Forum for High-Potentials in Sustainable Development”. Are you interested to become one of the 25 “Green Talents” in 2012? Visit our website http://www.greentalents.de/ and submit your application until 10 June 2012.
Winners will be selected by a high-calibre jury of experts from academia, public institutions and industry. Which are the selection criteria to become a “Green Talent”? Relevance of the research field of the candidate and his/her scientific merits. The jury nominates excellent scientists with a research focus on e.g. renewable energies, environmental protection, urban development, mobility research or climatology.
In fall 2012, the awardees will be taken on an approximately two-week tour, visiting outstanding German research institutions and gaining first-hand insights into sustainability research in Germany. They will also have the opportunity to establish new contacts, to discuss their own research projects with experts from academia and industry, and to actively contribute to the ongoing scientific discussion – not least at the 9th BMBF Forum for Sustainability (FONA-Forum: www.fona.de/en/index.php) in Berlin.
