9 June is almost upon us, and the opportunity to apply for the Green Talents Competition of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is closing soon.
The “Green Talents – International Forum for High Potentials in Sustainable Development” annually offers 25 outstanding young researchers an exclusive access to German R&D.
A high-calibre jury of German experts from academia and industry honours the winners for their original ideas and excellent research merits in the field of sustainable development. An interdisciplinary approach is favourable, which is why applicants from all disciplines contributing to sustainability research are welcome.
Selected as a “Green Talent”, the winners are invited to a two-week science forum in Germany, taking place in the fall of 2013. Here they will gain a deeper insight into state-of-the-art research conducted at some of the top locations in sustainable development and meet with experts from their respective fields in individual appointments.
On top of that, the winners have the chance to establish long-lasting relationships with German partners and experience an inspiring new work environment when they return for a research stay of up to three months the year following the forum.
