Join an international centre of reference on climate change finance

Operating from campuses in Lille, Nice, Paris, London and Singapore, EDHEC Business School is ranked in the top ten of European business schools. With more than 110 nationalities represented in its student body, some 50,000 alumni in 130 countries, and learning partnerships with 290 institutions worldwide, it is truly international.

For over 20 years, EDHEC Business School has been pursuing an ambitious research policy that combines academic excellence with practical relevance.  Spearheaded by EDHEC-Risk Institute, this original research policy aims to make EDHEC Business School an academic institution of reference for decision makers in a small number of areas in which it has reached critical mass in terms of expertise and research results. This ambition is delivered by furthering academic research in these areas while simultaneously highlighting its practical implications and applications to decision makers.  The approach may be complemented by strategic partnerships or business ventures that can accelerate the transfer of scientific innovation to the industry and financially benefit the School and its constituencies.

Marking the priority assigned by the School to sustainability issues and building on its research programmes exploring the relationships between climate change and finance, EDHEC-Risk Institute will become EDHEC-Risk Climate Impact Institute (ERCII) in the Fall of 2022.

The mission of EDHEC-Risk Climate Impact Institute is to help private and public decision makers manage climate-related financial risks and make the best use of financial tools to support the transition to low-emissions and climate-resilient economies.

As part of its international development programme and in order to strengthen its research potential, the research centre offers the following opportunities:
