Technology Forum

Complexity, Convergence, Certainty - The Process from Science to Technology

-

As an important discussion platform for politics, research and business, the Alpbach Technology Forum deals with the significance of technological developments for the business world and society, as well as living standards, quality of life and competitiveness. The plenary events are structured in a way to encourage interdisciplinary discussion. The working groups discuss current issues in order to provide decision-making input for policymakers.

Once again, Junior Alpbach will be among the main focuses of the event: These discussions with researchers are meant to increase young people s enthusiasm for science and research, especially natural sciences.
