European Forum Alpbach 2017 - Conflict and Cooperation
Conflicts and cooperative efforts are capable of destroying established entities, but can also give rise to new foundations. Between August 16 and September 1, 2017, hundreds of pioneers hailing from academic, political, economic, cultural, and civil society backgrounds will present groundbreaking ideas on this tense topic.
Travel to Alpbach and immerse yourself into a unique surrounding with new ideas, channels of thought and contacts aplenty. This year will see 20 academic seminars, led by renown academics, and over 200 plenary sessions and breakout sessions take place under the banner of Conflict and Cooperation. The advent of artificial intelligence in all imaginable areas of society and the future of the liberal-minded America are key thematic priorities of the 17-day programme.
Below you can find a first draft of the upcoming programme. All speakers will be added in April 2017. We look forward to welcoming you to Alpbach!
