"Green Talents" Award at the 6th BMBF Forum for Sustainability04.09.2009 - (idw) VDI Technologiezentrum GmbH
On 9 - 10 September 2009 the 6th BMBF Forum for Sustainability subtitled "Research for Sustainability - One Step Further" will take place in Hamburg. The event also marks the closing of the "Green Talents" competition: The prize will be awarded to 15 young scientists from across the world whose research is making a long-term contribution to resolving global challenges such as climate change, diminishing energy resources and large-scale environmental pollution. At the Prototyp-Museum Hamburg, they will present their creative and innovative solutions in the field of sustainability.
In 2009 the award was offered for the first time to outstanding scientific talents in the field of environmental technology and will be presented to the winning researchers at the 6th BMBF Forum for Sustainability by Prof Dr Frieder Meyer-Krahmer, State Secretary to the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
The conference also marks the start of the new BMBF framework programme for Research for Sustainability. After five years of successful FONA research, the programme provides new thematic priorities, strengthens international collaboration and calls for an even closer interlinking of fundamental and applied research.
The 6th BMBF Forum for Sustainability is settled at the interface of science, industry, public authorities and politics. The conference aims at presenting best-practice examples, exploring new solutions and fostering the network of the researcher community. The conference opening with the "Green Talents" awards ceremony and the thematic parallel sessions will be completed by the open final conference of the BMBF national research programme "Sustainable Forestry".
On-site registration for the 6th BMBF Forum for Sustainability will be offered at the registration desk.
