European Forum Alpbach 2021


18.08. - 03.09.2021


The European Forum Alpbach (EFA) is a platform that drives ideas for an empowered and democratic Europe. It brings together young people, leading scholars, thinkers, scientists, policy makers, business people and civil society actors from Europe and from all over the world to engage and contribute to its mission of shaping a stronger Europe.

How can we secure Europe's Future?

How can we finance Europe?

How can we leverage the climate crisis as an opportunity to rethink how we live, work, do business?

By focusing on these questions, the European Forum Alpbach intends, not only to dream the future of Europe, but also to shape Europe's future and to initiate action for the European continent.

What are the #EFAChallenges?


The #EFAChallenges are an innovate digital learning format of the European Forum Alpbach aimed at finding solutions to the most pressing challenges of our times! Following design thinking methodology, participants get the chance to ideate a project and refine the idea once shortlisted. 

At the beginning of June 2021, 8 teams were shortlisted to present their ideas in Alpbach. 

During the summer months, lean canvas, prototyping and pitching workshops will take place in order to provide a foundation for the shortlisted teams to prepare a prototype to showcase in Alpbach.

It is not possible to apply anymore for this year's edition of the #EFAChallenges.
