The Professorship of Public Policy for the Green Transition (PPGT) focuses on designing and evaluating policies for the green transition worldwide. The group uses a variety of methods from automated data analyses (e.g. via machine learning) to qualitative analyses (e.g. via interviews) to support ambitious policies for climate and energy transitions.

This position Reaching climate targets requires massive investments, which can only be provided when blending public and private sources of capital. This PhD position will leverage and expand data collected at the PPGT group to analyze investment patterns, including but not limited to VC investments in cleantech and public/private risk sharing structures of nature investments.
