International Bachelor Summer School

The Oeschger Centre together with the WTI and the University of Bern strongly promote the education of young researchers. The aim of the International Bachelor Summer School for Climate Change Research is to bring together highly motivated, open-minded bachelor students from different disciplines. The overarching topic is Climate Change Research, where different facets of the problem will be tackled: The Physical Climate System, Climate Economics, Governance and Knowledge Transfer.

It traditionally takes place in Bern, Switzerland and will include traditional keynote lectures, teamwork in workshops and self-study. The International Bachelor Summer School is open to bachelor students (semesters 4 to 6) worldwide. Participation is very competitive and limited to a maximum of 36.

The International Bachelor Summer School 2019 will focus on “Confronting Climate Change – from Science to Policy” – a topic which will show the importance of interdisciplinary research.
