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.

− networking opportunities at the 10-year-anniversary Green Talents alumni conference in Berlin with key representatives of the German sustainability landscape,
− a fully funded research stay of up to three months at an institution of your own choice in Germany in 2020,
− exclusive access for you to the prestigious Green Talents alumni network.
