Czech & Slovak Club Alpbach
The Czech & Slovak Club Alpbach is an official affiliate club of the European Forum Alpbach (EFA).
The European Forum Alpbach is an interdisciplinary platform for science, politics, business and culture. Established in 1945, the annual European Forum Alpbach and events throughout the year address the relevant socio-political questions of our time.
EFA connects international decision-makers from all sectors of society with an interested audience and committed young people. The goal is to create a dialogue across the generational, ideological and other lines that divide us.
The EFA Club was founded by former scholarship holders and current EFA Czech and Slovak ambassadors. Our mission is to acquire sponsors to support scholarships for Czech and Slovak university students to attend the entire Forum in the August weeks each year.
