Prof. Christian Zehnder, UNIL

Prof. Holger Herz, UNIFR


Prof. Michael Powell, (Kellogg School of Management)


This year the workshop will take place right after the summer school and in the same location (hotel Alfa Soleil in Kandersteg) and participants are encouraged to subscribe to both events, because the timing foreseen in the program ensures a perfectly smooth transition from the summer school to the workshop. However it is also possible to only participate in one of the two events.

If you want to participate in both events, please make sure you sign up for the summer school + the workshop. 



The workshop offers participants the chance to present projects at any stage of progress (project ideas, research designs, completed projects).

If you would like to present at the workshop, please submit a title and abstract to Bénédicte Moreira ([email protected]


Submission deadline: May 30, 2023


Of course it is also possible to participate in the workshop without presenting a paper.


At the end of the workshop, Michael Powell will deliver a keynote address.




Participants will be hosted at:

Hôtel Alfa Soleil

CH- 3718 Kandersteg (canton of Bern)

Arrangements will be made by the program coordinator for all the participants.
