Green Talents - International Forum for High Potentials in Sustainable Development
Since 2009 the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) invites young researchers from all over the world to take part in "Green Talents - The International Forum for High Potentials in Sustainable Development".
A high-ranking jury of German experts from academia and industry selects outstanding scientists from all over the world. The winners are invited to a science forum which takes them across Germany. By visiting leading centres of German environmental and sustainability research (research institutions as well as companies that are active in R&D) they get hands-on experience of the country's research landscape.
Moreover, the "Green Talents" are given the opportunity to conduct a research stay (up to three months) in Germany the year following the forum, a unique opportunity which many of them make use of. Both, the journey and the research stay are funded by the BMBF.
