Location: Alpbach, Austria
Deadline: Finished

This is an opportunity to join the European Forum Alpbach. This is a two-week international forum that will bring together 400 like-minded people to find solutions to Europe's main challenges — security, climate, democracy and finance.

You will have panel discussions, workshops and seminars with EU and US speakers. You don’t have to worry about money, because the organisers will provide a scholarship of EUR 2,500.

European Forum Alpbach is the oldest Forum in the world, held in the Alps since 1945. This year, the forum will be held from 19 August to 2 September, 2023. Among the speakers are Yale University historian Timothy Snyder, President of Moldova Maia Sandu, former Presidents of the European Commission and other world leaders.

This is one of the thousands of EU opportunities for Ukraine.
