The aim of the annual ETH Academy on Sustainability and Technology is to promote excellent PhD research and develop responsible leaders for tomorrow’s future. Designed as an intense 5-day scientific seminar, the academy focuses on advancing PhD projects in the context of organizations and the natural environment.

In order to foster sustainable development, we regard technological innovation as one key solution, combined with new corporate strategies, management tools, and policy approaches. To support the link between academic research and business, we invite corporate representatives for a discussion about perspectives on sustainability challenges ahead.
