FAN Hubs

In addition to the regular EFA events, the Forum Alpbach Network (FAN) organized a decentralized programme. We will contribute interactive online sessions and local events from all over the world. If you happen to be in Brussels, Zurich, Vienna or many more cities in and outside of Europe between 23rd of August and 3rd of September, and provided that national anti-corona measures allow for it, you may join one of these hubs and attend its plenaries, talks, hikes etc.

For participating in the regional events hosted by our FAN members, please check the websites and social media accounts of the Clubs and/or IGs in your region and contact them directly.

Find all 70 FAN-Hub events that take place during this year’s EFA in the following list:
