Seminar Week


The Seminar Week is the academic centrepiece of the European Forum Alpbach. The programme comprises 20 seminars devised and taught by internationally renowned academics. Its emphasis an open debate and its interdisciplinary atmosphere set the Seminar Week apart. This year, for example, we invite you to join forces with natural scientists and explore ways out of the climate crisis, to analyse the complex relationship between resilience and multilingualism under the guidance of anthropologists, or to team up with economists to examine the repercussions of the Eurozone crisis. The programme will also include four seminars with a focus on artistic skill and personal development.

The Seminar Week has been curated by the Scientific Advisory Board of the European Forum Alpbach under chairman Caspar Einem.
