2020 ETH Summer Academy on Sustainability and Technology

I would like to draw your attention to the 2020 ETH Academy on Sustainability and Technology. The theme of this year’s academy is “Understanding technological, organizational, and institutional processes for sustainability.” The academy will take place from 14-19 June 2020 in the beautiful mountain scenery of the Swiss Alps.

The academy provides a unique platform for junior researchers (PhD students and postdoctoral researchers) with a background in engineering, management, economics, and political sciences to present their work to an audience of diverse yet like-minded scholars and an international faculty with a record of accomplishments in research on energy and climate policy, environmental entrepreneurship and business, and sustainable technologies. Participants obtain detailed feedback on their research design, theoretical approaches, and methodology. In addition, we provide plenty of room for informal discussions and networking!

This year’s faculty consists of:

Dr. Ann Langley - Professor of Strategic Management, HEC Montréal
Dr. Gregory Nemet - Professor of Public Affairs, University of Wisconsin-Madison
Johannes Meuer - Senior Researcher of Sustainability and Technology, ETH Zurich
Dr. Volker Hoffmann - Professor of Sustainability and Technology, ETH Zurich
