Alpbach Politics Labs


The Alpbach Politics Labs get back to basics: together with an international academic, 12 participants will investigate a topic in-depth. Share knowledge, exchange strategies and discover new solutions - in a short time and a small group, the Alpbach Politics-Labs render the essence of a topic tangible.


Three labs are dedicated to current research projects of international experts; two further labs present independent initiatives that arose during the political innovation labs of the European Forum Alpbach, Re:think Austria 2013 and 2014. The labs will be held in the language in which the respective programme texts are written.

Registration and Participation

Since the labs have been conceived for small groups, the number of participants is limited. Independently of whether or not you are already registered for the Political Symposium, we ask you to let us know by e-mail by July 31st at the latest if you are interested in taking part in one of our labs. We will let you know by no later than August 5th whether participation is possible. The selection of participants is up to the lecturers.

There is no additional cost for the selected participants, but a valid registration for the Political Symposium is a pre-condition for participation.

Please send your name, address and professional background, as well as the name of the lab you would like to participate in, to
