The association "Verein Koreanischer Naturwissenschaftler und Ingenieure" (VeKNI) invites young Korean scientists and engineers to apply the "2008 Young Generation Forum (YGF)" in Daejeon, Korea from July 14 to 19, 2008. Each year since 2002, the Korean Federation of Science and Technology Societies (KOFST) has hosted the Young Generation Forum (YGF) to share the Korean vision of science and technology in the 21st century by bringing together in Korea young Korean scientists and engineers from all over the world. This forum is intended to serve as a platform where the young participants can develop an international perspective on science and technology by sharing their knowledge on state-of-the-art science and technology through  human networking. Additionally, the participants from other countries would be given the chance to not only develop an interest in but also be assimilated into the Korean culture. The 2008 YGF will bring together 80 young scientists and engineers from all over the world (including Germany, Britain, France, U.S., Japan, Canada, China, Russia, Middle East, Austria, etc.) as well as 40 young scientists and engineers from Korea.

VeKNI will recommend 8 young Korean scientists or engineers from Germany to KOFST for attending the YGF. The participants will receive from KOFST round trip air fare reimbursement (economy class) as well as accommodation and meals during the forum.
