Striving for International Cooperation in Sustainability Research

Every year, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) hosts 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.

This year's application period is over. We have once again received a large number of applications, and the Green Talents 2022 are already chosen. The 25 Green Talents come from 18 countries. We will publish the profiles of our 2022 awardees on our website pretty soon. During this year’s Green Talents Virtual Science Forum, the awardees will debate and interact 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.
