Connecting with the TEC Community

TEC at European Forum Alpbach August 25-27, 2022

The Internet as a theater of war and a weapon at the same time. On social media, videos of fighting, fleeing people and bombed buildings accompany the war in Ukraine; here, a battle for narratives rages - between heroic stories and disinformation. Just a mouse click away, criminal or warring hacker groups are trading blows and using all digital means to cripple opposing infrastructures from the shadows of the Internet. In the high-profile plenary session "Battlerground Internet: Between Cyberwar and Infowar", leading scientists and military experts such as Markus Reisner, Susanne Spahn and Volker Kozok will trace current developments, outline patterns in the cyber world and connections with the real world.

After two years in which the European Forum Alpbach was held virtually or hybrid due to the Corona pandemic, this debate will be held again this year as a face-to-face event in the Tyrolean mountains: The technology community will meet from Thursday, August 25, to Saturday, August 27, 2022 to discuss current and burning issues of the future. The TEC at European Forum Alpbach technology symposium is organized in the proven manner of the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology and ORF Radio Ö1.

The program includes 2 full days with 8 plenary sessions and workshops, 11 content sessions and several networking sessions. The various sessions are embedded in the framework theme of the European Forum Alpbach NEW EUROPE and all move along the four thematic "tracks": Securing Europe's Future in a Globalised World; The Climate Opportunity; The Financing of Europe's Future; and The Future of Democracy and the Rule of Law in Europe.

The debates will focus on the multiple crises we are currently facing (pandemic, energy crisis, climate change, inflation, Ukraine war) and from which ways out have to be found - with technology playing a central role. The plenary session will cover topics ranging from infowars and the energy transition to modern health technologies and securing global value chains. The traditional RTI Talk will also address the challenges facing policymakers in overcoming the crisis and the role of the arts in the necessary transformations of society and the economy. Content sessions on areas such as microelectronics, fake news, trust, climate protection in mobility and industry, the merging of people and technology, and artificial intelligence (which is also the subject of this year's Technology Symposium Yearbook) will provide further in-depth coverage. The program is complemented by numerous networking and community events - many opportunities for the technology community to meet and talk.
