Welcome to the European Forum Alpbach 2018 Diversity & Resilience | Aug 15 to 31, 2018

Europe’s Festival of Ideas When Nobel Price laureates, courageous entrepreneurs, extraordinary artists and engaged people from civil society meet in a small Tyrolean mountain village, new ideas are bound to emerge. When high-level European politicians, presidents, members of government and managers are added to the mix, then actions quickly follow words.







Where Ideas Can Grow Since 1945, hundreds of international speakers from academia, business, politics, culture, and civil society have been transforming Alpbach into the European summer capital of discourse. Together with 5,000 participants, including 700 young scholarship holders from all over the world, they search for answers to the fundamental challenges facing our society.
