ETH Department of Humanities, Social and Political Science (D-GESS)

"In it's present form, D-GESS has been created in 1999. It forms one of the 16 departments of ETH Zurich. Overall, 23 professors, around 80 doctoral students, and about 150 other academic staff ensure that research and teaching meets the highest standards. Both in its research and its teaching, D-GESS focuses on the four core areas of Behavior (behavioral science), Governance (political science), Knowledge (humanities) and Law & Economics. All professorships are independent teaching and research units that have a clear methodological and topical relevance for ETH Zurich’s focus on the natural sciences and technology."

ETH Risk Center

"In establishing the interdisciplinary Risk Center by mid 2011 ETH Zurich places itself among the leading proponents of understanding the growing complexity and interdependence of our social and engineered systems, and discovering and modeling related behavioral phenomena. In this spirit the Risk Center will promote system or even "system-of-systems" thinking and theory and will build an integrated view of risk landscapes. It also serves as an interface between academia, industry, and civil (or governmental) authorities. Its research output should help society and industry to better manage risk portfolios and to design novel solutions for collaborative risk reduction, and resilience-enhancing schemes. Donations have been made by partners like AXA, Credit Suisse, KPMG, Swiss Re, Swisselectric, and Zurich Insurance Group."
