Curated groups work together for three days: They develop new ideas and innovative approaches on specific topics. A high level of expertise and professional guidance make Lab participants dive deep, co-create and build networks for future action.
The EFA Labs are designed to create interdisciplinary communities for a strong and democratic Europe. Taking place in form of a closed and well-selected group, each Lab consists of various participants who contribute their knowledge and in turn benefit from the expertise of their peers. Together they envision solutions to a pre-defined issue along one of the four thematic tracks of the European Forum Alpbach. Persons from diverse fields of activity are chosen by the EFA and its partner organisations: policy makers, scientists, civil society, business – to name but a few. A Lab’s broad team composition allows for tackling important questions from different perspectives, resulting in cross-cutting alliances. A Lab’s goal is laying the foundations for strategic cooperation and a joint process that takes effect far beyond the EFA event.
In every Lab 30 to 40 experts work on their respective topic with innovative methods and facilitation. These are key to a Lab’s outcome, always setting the course for a Bold Europe.
