    Summer School on Uncertainty at Work

    18 - 23 June 2023

    Congressi Stefano Franscini, Ascona (Switzerland)



    We invite junior scholars (PhDs, Post-docs…) to submit their intention to participate to a summer school on uncertainty at work hosted by Sharon Alvarez (University of Pittsburgh), Mark Griffin (Curtin University), and Gudela Grote (ETH Zürich), which will take place from 18 June to 23 June 2023, at the Congressi Stefano Franscini in Ascona (Switzerland).


    The aim of this summer school is to compare and contrast different conceptual and methodological approaches to examining uncertainty regulation with a focus on the work domain. The predominant view of uncertainty reduction as the main motivational driver will be debated in light of recent research on exploration and learning in cognitive psychology, neuroscience, strategic management, and organizational behavior. New interdisciplinary perspectives will be discussed and foundations built for an emerging community of uncertainty researchers.


    The summer school registration fee is 200 CHF; full board and lodging for the entire conference will be approximately 750 CHF, depending on the chosen accommodation. A number of grants will be available for PhD students.


    To apply for the summer school, please send an email expressing your intention to participate byNovember 2022 to uncertaintysummerschool@ethz.ch. More detailed information, including subsequent deadlines, participating senior scholars, and the detailed program, is available on the summer school website (https://wop.ethz.ch/news/summer-school-on-uncertainty-at-work_2023.html).


    We look forward to seeing you in Ascona next summer!
