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 2008 academy focused on climate change, it was also open to PhD students working on similar challenges with respect to environmental sustainability. The first four days of the academy focused on improving the research design and methodology of participants’ PhD projects.

Besides content-related discussions, students got valuable feedback from their peers and three well-respected professors:
