Our EFA365 event series brings lively discussions and inspiring panel talks to the world beyond Alpbach. We invite you to pass the wait for the next Forum by joining what happens next to where you are!

Our European commitment is to summon those who contribute to a stronger Europe for the good of all. We organise not only the annual event in Alpbach, but also host continuous activities throughout the year. Our source of motivation is an ongoing, collaborative process of finding new ideas, culminating in the annual EFA event in Alpbach.
