Scholarships for the European Forum Alpbach 2012

Forum Alpbach 2012
12. April 2012

From 16 August to 1 September 2012 around 4,000 participants from over 60 countries will come to the village of Alpbach in the Tyrolean mountains in order to discuss the latest contemporary issues. Students and recent graduates are warmly invited to participate and this year the Forum will again be issuing scholarships to enable youngsters to be part of this fascinating and long-established event.

The topic for this year's forum is "Expectations - The Future of the Young". The organiser's aim is to establish a dialogue about three kinds of expectations: What are the expectations of the younger generation? What expectations are directed at them? And finally, what "heritage" and what "hereditary diseases" will future generations have to deal with? In order to stimulate and foster this dialogue, the "young" will be included considerably more into the various discussion formats of the Forum.

The European Forum Alpbach 2012 will give its participants a choice of 16 one-week seminars which will analyse the manifestations of "Expectations - The Future of the Young" 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, law, spatial planning and financial markets. Summer Schools for European Law and Health Care, as well as a rich cultural programme, complete the agenda.

The 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.

To enable young people to share in this experience, the Forum offers scholarships for students and recent graduates and applications are now open. For more details about the scholarship program please visit the website
