Seminar Week

-

The Seminar Week is the academic heart of the European Forum Alpbach and is characterised by the space it gives to discussion, its interdisciplinary atmosphere and intergenerational dialogue. For a week, Alpbach becomes a hive of innovative knowledge transfer: academic seminars in the mornings (Seminars 1-15), artistic and practical seminars in the afternoons (Seminars 16-28). The interplay between these two types of seminar allows knowledge and active participation to be combined in a new way.

The Alpbach Learning Missions (ALM) are a new addition for this year. Following on from the academic discussions during the first week, they offer participants the opportunity to work together in tackling a concrete question in depth – with help from experts – and ideally to put forward some concrete results.
Specialist knowledge is not necessary for participation in the seminars.

Seminars 1 to 15 run from 9:30 to 12:30. Seminars 16 to 28 run from 15:00 to 18:00. On Sunday the seminars run from 12:00 to 14:00 and from 15:00 to 17:00.

Please note that the programme is subject to change and will be updated continuously. If you have questions regarding the programme, please contact clara.rindler-schantl@alpbach.org.

After the Seminar Week, five Seminars turn into Alpbach Learning Missions (ALM).
