In 2020, the European Forum Alpbach is wherever you are

What is special about the EFA online conference? Why should you take part? Who curated the programme?

Especially in times of great uncertainty there is an increased need for discussion about how to restart our lives after the pandemic. For 75 years now the EFA has aimed at being the place to discuss the pressing questions of our time and in this regard 2020 is no different.

This year the European Forum Alpbach (EFA) is breaking new ground. The first EFA online conference will be even more international than our analogue events in the past. Different sessions will be streamed via our conference tool from hubs around the world and you can participate live! There is a 12-day programme with high-level experts speaking from four different continents.

Events curated by young people

In addition, alumni Clubs around the world will contribute to the Forum. You will find over 50 digital events curated by young people. The EFA online conference is a unique chance to see the impact of the pandemic in a much wider context and get perspectives from places you have never been.


The conference tool we have chosen for our online conference offers various opportunities for interaction with specific groups of participants or between individual participants. There is, for example, a separate networking area and so-called lounges to meet, chat and exchange digital business cards.

In a time where everything is cancelled and postponed the European Forum Alpbach will not let you down. Join the conversation!
