Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich: PhD Workshop on International Climate Policy, October 25-26, 2012
The ICP workshops series is organized semi-annually under the auspices of the European PhD Network on International Climate Policy. It aims to offer doctoral candidates the opportunity to present their research ideas and results, receive feedback, and exchange information and assistance in an informal setting. PhD students from all disciplines working on topics relevant to climate policy and environmental economics are invited to submit applications. The 25th ICP workshop will cover topics of relevance for climate change mitigation and adaptation, such as policy instruments, carbon market mechanisms, science-policy interface, climate and development, renewable energy and forests in a changing climate, as well as climate change negotiations and new climate governance architectures.
Participation is free of charge, but workshop participants are expected to cover their travel and accommodation expenses. Active participation is required by presenting a paper and/or by serving as a discussant for a paper presented by a fellow PhD candidate. To apply for the workshop, please submit the application form available on the workshop’s website (http://www.ib.ethz.ch/news/workshop). If you intend to present a paper, please add an informative abstract of 300 to 500 words. Please send your documents via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 15, 2012.
