The Green Talents International Forum for High Potentials in Sustainable Development hosted by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research is inviting applications from scientists to showcase their research to a broader public and conduct their research in Germany.
With this year’s focus on the question of how digitalisation can promote more sustainability in science and societies, the motto of the 2019 competition is ‘Smart Green Planet – Solutions for a Sustainable Future’. However, applicants from all disciplines can apply and the research need not have a direct link to digitalisation.
Candidates could be master’s students, PhD students, postdocs, as well as young professionals, with no more than three years of professional work experience and a strong focus on sustainable development. They must also prove excellent command of English and above-average grade.
Further, only applications from non-German citizens or residents will be considered. The winner will receive an invitation to the fully funded two-week Green Talents Science Forum 2019, consisting of visits to leading German sustainability facilities, institutions and companies with insights into their research. They will be provided with a fully funded research stay of up to three months at an institution of their choice in Germany in 2020. Deadline for submission is May 22, 2019.
