How can we achieve prosperity for a growing global population while also reducing the use of natural resources? How can we protect biodiversity and manage climate change? We can only answer these pressing future challenges with the help of excellent research, and by turning to young researchers in particular. The Green Talents sustainability Competition offers young creative minds from around the world the possibility for interdisciplinary cooperation in the development and realization of new ideas.
Digital technology plays an important role in this context. This is why the Federal Ministry of Education and Research is holding this year’s Green Talents Sustainability Competition on the theme “Smart Green Planet – Solutions for a sustainable future”. It is all about tapping large amounts of data more quickly and linking future challenges in a meaningful way. Hence, we encourage applicants to look for ideas that connect digital technology with aspects of sustainability research and societal change.
Further, it is a unique opportunity for Junior Researchers to find new partners from around the world. As a Green Talents awardee, you become part of an interdisciplinary and international network without parallel. Your application is a major step forward on the path towards a sustainable digital future.
Candidates must submit their application online along with their work. Further, candidates must submit their applications before the deadline.
Applicants must submit their applications before 2 p.m. CEST on 22 May 2019.
