13th April 2022 — The top-class sustainability competition "Green Talents" has entered a new round. The competition is aimed at international young scientists working in the field of sustainability research across all disciplines.

Tackling the societal challenges of our time requires international exchange and cooperation. With the Green Talents competition, the BMBF has therefore been promoting the exchange of innovative green ideas and the emergence of international collaborations since 2009. As on previous occasions, DLR-PT has been responsible for organising the competition from the very beginning. It is in charge of designing the annual programme, guiding researchers through the application phase and organising and moderating a virtual science forum lasting several days for the selected Green Talents. In addition, DLR-PT supports the BMBF in the pre-selection of applications.
