  7. Strategic goals • Establish CCES as national and international focal point for inter- and transdisciplinary environmental and sustainability research • Achieve a visible societal impact with a focus on socio-economic implementation • Achieve a long-term structuring effect • Implement training and education programs • Promote dialogue and networking with stakeholders 7

  8. Goal 1: Establish CCES as national and international focal point for inter- and transdisciplinary environmental and sustainability research • Continue large-scale collaborative projects • Increase overall critical mass on key themes • Unify initiatives in sustainability in the ETH Domain and make optimal use of synergies • Establish strategic alliances and cooperation with institu-tions with similar mandate nationally and internationally • Achieve a leading presence in national research initiatives (e.g. NCCRs) and in EU FP7 8

  9. Goal 2: Achieve a visible societal impact with a focus on socio-economic implementation • Identify key societal benefit areas • Foster the dialogue with stakeholders outside science • Focus on implementation and solutions • Involve federal and cantonal administrations 9

  10. Goal 3: Achieve a long-term structuring effect • Integrate the research activities of the Federal Institutes of Technology ETH Zurich and EPFL and the ETH Domain research institutes WSL, Eawag, PSI, and Empa • Focus the research profile of the participating institutions • Identify strengths and weaknesses • Provide input for future strategic planning and restructuring • Align with the strategic planning of the institutions • Promote interdisciplinary work at the interfaces 10

  11. Goal 4: Implement training and education programs • Further develop environmental education materials for the elementary and high-school level (CCES@School) • Further develop complementary education activities in the field of sustainability science (e.g. CCES Winter School) • Develop problem solutions for stakeholders outside the scientific community (e.g. cantonal administration) • Focus on capacity building for developing countries 11

  12. Goal 5: Promote dialogue and networking with stakeholders • Participate in the public environmental and sustainability policy debate • Organize public events on CCES topics • Use synergies with national partners • Foster cross-media approaches in cooperation with national partners 12

  15. Funding and resources • Target duration 11 years, 2006-2016 • Funding approved by the ETH Board: • 2006-2011: 30 MCHF (5 MCHF/year) • 2012-2016: 15 MCHF • Three-part funding scheme secured from (1) the ETH-Board, (2) dedicated resources by the participating institutions, (3) third-party funding (industry, SNF, EU, federal offices) • Target budget: ~20 MCHF/yr overall budget • Re-orientation and focusing of the critical mass and excellence in science and engineering already existing at participating institutions • Strong potential to raise external fund-raising through large scale programs (NCCR, FP7, NFP, KTI) 15
