Green Talents Award 2017

Sustainable development means finding a balance between the need for socio-economic development, the protection of the environment, and the preservation of our earth for present and future generations. These topics of global political relevance demand international research cooperation. The 2017 Green Talents competition will address these topics with a special focus on the theme of "Sustainable Production and Consumption".

The "Green Talents - International Forum for High Potentials in Sustainable Development" was launched in 2009  by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and honours 25 young researchers each year. 

The 2017 Green Talents award includes:

  • An invitation to the fully funded two-week Science Forum 2017, consisting of a visit to leading German science and research facilities with unique insights from experts at these institutions
  • Individual appointments with German experts of the winner's choice to discuss opportunities for research and cooperation
  • Networking opportunities at the award ceremony in Berlin with participating Green Talents alumni
  • A fully funded research stay of up to three months at an institution of the award-winner´s choice in 2018
Exclusive and unique access to the Green Talents alumni network.

MBA focusing on entrepreneurship

Edinburgh Business School, the Graduate School of Business of Heriot-Watt University in the UK, is launching a full-time one-year MBA programme with a focus on entrepreneurship. This unique programme, which will run from September 2017, offers a host of initiatives including an intensive, six-week study seminar in Dubai, company visits, guest speakers, and a final elective where students develop an investor-ready business plan. Students will also benefit from one-to-one business mentoring while developing their plan. 

The new full-time MBA will attract entrepreneurs keen 

to launch their own businesses, and those who want to be more creative and adventurous within their organisations, 

offering specialist electives in 'Entrepreneurship and 

Creativity' and 'Entrepreneurial Venturing'.

In recognition of the shortage of top women business leaders worldwide, Edinburgh Business School is offering one female applicant a fully-funded place on the new full-time MBA programme.
