Researcher works with ampules in the lab.

How can we realise good and healthy living conditions for everyone around the world when global climate change challenges today’s economies and life styles? How can we preserve our planet’s resources for future generations? How can research contribute to more sustainability? These questions are at the centre of the “Green Talents – International Forum for High Potentials in Sustainable Development”. It invites you as a creative and open-minded scientist to apply with your project to showcase your research to a broader public, to discuss with renowned experts, and to conduct your research in Germany.

With this year’s special focus on the question of how digitalisation can promote more sustainability in science and our societies, the motto of the 2019 competition is “Smart Green Planet – Solutions for a Sustainable Future”. However, applications from all disciplines are highly welcome and the research does not need to have a direct link to digitalisation.

As a successful Green Talent 2019, you 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 exclusive insights into their pioneering research and projects,
