The German-Japanese Energy Transition Council (GJETC) strives to enhance the binational exchange between researchers investigating energy matters related to Japan and/or Germany. It focuses on exploring energy solutions and policies that are in line with climate change mitigation commitments while it must be ensured that these are compatible with security of energy supply, social well-being and international competitiveness.

With its Second Young Scientists Dialogue, the GJETC seeks to widen its perspective by inviting young scientists (age under 40 years) with a particular focus on the Energy Transition in Germany and/or Japan to share their ideas with the council members. Young scientists from various disciplines are encouraged to present their scientific findings or to introduce a question/topic for comparative German-Japanese analysis that could be discussed by the council in the future.

If your submission is accepted, you will be invited to present your results or ideas in elevator pitches of 15 minutes, followed by 5-10 min. Q&A from the council members.


Any topic meeting the criteria below will be welcome. An advantage will be suggestions comparing Japan and Germany or addressing their bilateral cooperation.  In addition, we particularly invite submissions focusing on the GJETC’s study topics for 2023 or one of the special topics outlined below.
