Climate change is a major issue facing the world in the 21st century. Drastic reductions of greenhouse gas emissions are crucial for stabilizing the world’s ecosystems. The business sector needs to mitigate the sources of climate change and adapt to its effects even while both its magnitude and economic implications are uncertain. Consequently, the appropriate climate change mitigation and adaptation becomes a cornerstone of competitive strategy. The PhD-Academy is centered on these challenges from an organizational science perspective. The aim of the annual ETH PhD-Academy is to promote excellent PhD-research in the area of sustainability and technology and to develop responsible leaders for tomorrow. While the 2011 Academy again focuses on climate change, it is also open to PhD-students working on similar challenges with respect to environmental sustainability. The five days of the Academy concentrate on improving the research design and methodology of participants’ PhD-projects. We invite PhD-students with a background in strategic management, technology/innovation management, or institutional change to participate in the Academy. Besides content-related discussions, students will get valuable feedback from their peers and three professors with long-standing organizational research experience:
