Who is behind
ETH Week is a learning format in the context of ETH's 'Critical Thinking Initiative'. It is an interdisciplinary course which fosters critical and
independent thinking, innovative learning and real - world problem solving. The current edition is being organised by ETH Sustainability, the Competence Center for Materials and Processes (MaP), and the Chair of Technology and Innovation Management. The ETH Week was triggered through a students’ initiative.
As Rector of ETH Zurich, Sarah Springman bears the overall responsibility. Tine Bratrich is the Director of ETH Sustainability and received the mandate of the school board to organise ETH Week.
Stefano Brusoni, Professor for Technology and Innovation Management, is involved with the further development of ETH Week and forms the Steering Board of ETH Week together with Reto Knutti, Associate Vice President for Sustainability, and Andreas Vaterlaus, Prorector for Curriculum Development and Innovation in Education.

Patricia Heuberger-Meyer of ETH Global coordinates external partners and organises the Knowledge Fair.
