In 2017, the European Forum Alpbach will deal with “Conflict and Cooperation“. From August 16 until September 01, 5000 people from over 60 countries will once again come to the Tyrolian mountain village of Alpbach to discuss and explore current issues in the interdisciplinary setting of our conference. Once again, we are calling for applications for scholarships which will enable students and recent graduates to participate in this equally fascinating and venerable event. Please find all relevant information below.


The European Forum Alpbach 2017 will give its participants a choice of 16 one-week seminars in a great variety of academic fields. The Alpbach Symposia will approach the topic from a more practice-oriented vantage point. A large number of panel discussions will give you the opportunity to debate the most burning current issues in the fields of healthcare, technology, economics, international politics, spatial planning and financial markets. Summer Schools for European Law and Health Care Policy, as well as a rich cultural programme, complete the agenda.


Our international interdisciplinary conference offers participants the opportunity to enter into discussion with renowned personalities. In a unique atmosphere, experts from politics, business and academia will discuss burning issues of our times with the participants. An extensive social programme gives participants the chance to continue debates outside the conference and seminar rooms. The special nature of the European Forum attracts around 5000 participants to the Tyrolean village of Alpbach every year.
To enable young people to share in this experience, the forum itself and 36 regional clubs and Initiative Groups (IG) offer scholarships for students and recent graduates.
