Call for Seminar Assistants


APPLY AS A SEMINAR ASSISTANT and take part in the European Forum Alpbach 2022

Have you already been a scholarship holder in Alpbach? Did you enjoy the Alpbach Seminars and would like to get more involved in terms of content and organisation? Join us again – this time as a Seminar Assistant – and support the Seminar Chairs in transforming Alpbach into an insiprational place that opens minds and souls for Europe’s future. 




General information: 

The changed structure of the EFA22 has also an impact on the Alpbach Seminars. In order to better integrate the seminars into the overall programme, the seminars will take place every morning for the whole duration of the event. Scholarship holders will decide on two seminars, each of the seminars running for one week. The interplay of scientific, creative and skills-orientated activities, together with the conference programme of panels, workshops and plenary debates in the afternoons turn Alpbach into a place of innovative knowledge transfer and holistic learning. 

Seminar Assistants play an important role in ensuring the success of the seminars. Therefore, it is essential for Seminar Assistants to be in Alpbach for the whole duration of the event, as they will be supporting two seminars (one in each week). Throughout the time Seminar Assistants will be supported by the team responsible for the Alpbach Seminars.
