Seminar Week

-

The Seminar Week is the academic centrepiece of the European Forum Alpbach. This event consists of 20 seminars conceptualised and facilitated by internationally-renowned academics. Its inter-disciplinary atmosphere allows room for interesting debates. This year, the programme will see evolutionary biologists getting to the bottom of cooperation; information scientists highlighting the ethics surrounding artificial intelligence; theologians discussing the morality of economics. The latest theoretical and practical insights are a defining characteristic throughout all seminars.

The programme is curated by the academic advisory committee of the European Forum Alpbach, with Caspar Einem taking the lead.
