European Forum Alpbach

The founder of the European Forum Alpbach Foundation is the European Forum Alpbach Association, which took place for the first time in August 1945 as one of the earliest international political and intellectual events in post-WWII Europe. Alpbach was created as an intellectual platform of discussion where Europe’s cultural, scientific and humanitarian heritage could be developed in a future-oriented way and where European integration could be promoted.


The European Forum Alpbach (EFA) is a space and place for the emergence of reflection and action. It brings together young people from Europe and from all over the world with the most innovative minds from politics, business, civil society, culture, and science to drive ideas for a strong and democratic Europe. With this diverse, intergenerational, and interdisciplinary community, the Forum influences key actors throughout the European continent to facilitate their learning and decisions.
