On behalf of Initiative Group Alpbach Romania (IGAR) it is our pleasure to invite you to the Forum Alpbach Network Spring Conference 2020, which will take place from May 1st to 3rd in Brașov, Romania.
Early-bird-tickets for EUR 35,- will be available until March 1st for two participants per Club/IG maximum. The full participation fee is EUR 55,- and includes accommodation with breakfast, two meals and conference material. You can also apply for refund of your travel expenses contacting IGAR after the conference. A maximum number of four participants per Club/IG can register. We kindly ask you to confirm your participation by March 16th latest.
You can find the draft schedule below. Further details such as the agenda, tips for your travel to Brașov and the final program will be communicated by mid-April.
In order to get to Brașov in a more eco-friendly way – keeping to the EFA’s philosophy of being a green forum – we offer to provide a direct bus or to book a night train ride (with price reduction for groups) from Vienna and back. Please fill out this DOODLE so we can see if any of these options would be accepted by enough people.
We, the Forum Alpbach Network together with Initiative Group Alpbach Romania, are looking forward to having you as our guests in Brașov this May!
