Are You a Green Talent?
In February 2009, the German Federal Ministry of Research and Education has launched an initiative to invite talented young researchers from throughout the world to visit the leading environmental technology location Germany.
The 'Green Talents' competition under the patronage of Research Minister Dr. Annette Schavan addresses excellent young researchers and engineering scientists in the field of environmental technologies to apply for participation in the 'International Forum for High Potentials in Green Technologies'.
The International Forum will take place in August/September 2009. For one week, the selected participants will travel through Germany, visit leading universities, research institutes and companies, gather specific information about research activities on site and learn about the possibilities of cooperating with German partners. Individual meetings with experts and the presentation of their own research will be part of the forum - as well as a cultural program and a meeting with Minister Dr. Annette Schavan as a special highlight.
APPLY NOW for a seat on the Green Talents International Forum, if you want to meet Germany's leading environmental scientists and get to know one of the world's largest technology exporters.
Further information on the competition and an application guideline are provided on the 'Green Talents' website http://www.research-in-germany.de/greentalents.
Please give this information also to other interested persons.
