The International Bachelor Summer School for Climate Change Research invites highly motivated bachelor students (semester 4 to 6) from different disciplines to participate in
the course which is being held under the umbrella of Climate Change Research.
The Summer School focuses on the following topics: the physical climate system, climate economics and governance and knowledge transfer.
It comprises keynote lectures that are held by high-profile scientists; workshops to train and sharpen students’ disciplinary competence; and a simulation exercise of a multilateral
climate conference that will be run by the students themselves.
A field trip to the high altitude research station Jungfraujoch (3500 m a.s.l.) will provide insights into latest measurement technologies, as well as to the impacts of climate change.
Students will have the opportunity to experience one of Switzerland’s most spectacular places: the Aletsch – the largest Alpine Glacier.
