It’s important now, more than ever, that our young generation exchanges ideas on the future of Europe. With its scholarships, European Forum Alpbach (EFA) strives to present a European perspective through the sharing of groundbreaking knowledge and interdisciplinary debates.
Conflicts and cooperative efforts are capable of destroying established entities, but can also give rise to new foundations. Between August 16 and September 1, 2017, hundreds of pioneers hailing from academic, political, economic, cultural, and civil society backgrounds will present groundbreaking ideas on this tense topic.
Travel to Alpbach and immerse yourself into a unique surrounding with new ideas, channels of thought and contacts aplenty. This year will see 20 academic seminars, led by renown academics, and over 200 plenary sessions and breakout sessions take place under the banner of Conflict and Cooperation. The advent of artificial intelligence in all imaginable areas of society and the future of the liberal-minded America are key thematic priorities of the 17-day programme.
Apart from the seminar week, EFA also offers participation in health symposium and a scholarship to participate in the “Professional Programme on European Health Care and Social Systems in Transition”. It was a tremendous opportunity for me last year in terms of networking, educational as well as personal and professional experiences. Now its also your turn to use this chance to become a part of European Forum Alpbach!
