Striving for International Cooperation in Sustainability Research

Since 2009 the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has hosted the prestigious Green Talents – International Forum for High Potentials in Sustainable Development to promote the international exchange of innovative green ideas within the field of sustainability. The award, under the patronage of the German Federal Minister of Education and Research, honours young researchers from numerous countries and scientific disciplines for their achievements and efforts to making their communities, countries and societies more sustainable. Selected by a jury of German experts, the award winners are granted unique access to the country’s research elite.

Have a look at the awardees of last year´s Green Talents Competition. The 25 Green Talents come from 18 countries. During the Green Talents Virtual Science Forum, the awardees debated and interacted with some of Germany’s leading sustainability researchers and experts as well as the other Green Talents awardees and alumni on a wide variety of green topics to lay the foundation for future networking and collaboration. At the conclusion of the Virtual Science Forum, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research honoured the Green Talents 2022 at a Virtual Award Ceremony.
