The 16th Dialogue of science of the Academia Engelberg Foundation, now called ENGELBERG DIALOGUES, takes place under the following topic: “Unlimited Migration?”.
National and international experts, young researchers and interested persons will be discussing this controversial topic from 14 to 17 October 2018 in Engelberg.
The ENGELBERG DIALOGUES are held exclusively in English and consist of three elements:
1. A two-day Autumn Academy for young researchers (i.e. graduate students and postdocs) from various academic fields and countries,
2. A half-day workshop inviting academics, business people, policymakers and an interested public to share their views in a lively discourse
3. A one-day forum to further develop the results of recent days and the contributions of an international keynote speaker and a panel of renowned experts.
The public evening, which takes place on Monday, October 15 remains in the program. It deals with internal migration, daily work paths such as Engelberg – Zurich – return and their consequences such as sleeping city, traffic chaos on streets and in train stations, etc.
Following a long period of fruitful cooperation, a close partnership was agreed on in June 2007. The Collegium Helveticum is an institution jointly borne by the University of Zurich and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (‘ETH’), Zurich.
The ETH Board is responsible for the strategic leadership of the ETH domain and assumes the supervision of its institutions. Its close relationship with the ETH Council has contributed to the successful continuation of Academia Engelberg Foundation since 2000.
The Foundation promotes research into the connecting human fundamentals of science. Academia Engelberg Foundation and the Foundation for Basic Research in Human Sciences have entered into a cooperation agreement for the period 2011 to 2015.

With Singularity 2030 has been a partnership since 2016. The aim is to create synergies in the knowledge transfer of scientific research on singularity (artificial intelligence / biological intelligence) to the general public and entrepreneurial circles.
The Stavros Niarchos Foundation is one of the world’s leading international philanthropic organizations. It has been supporting Academia Engelberg Foundation’s activities since 2013 and thus significantly contributes to the continued existence of the summer school.
A partnership with the University of Lucerne has existed since summer 2013. Since 2016 we have also a parthership with the Faculty of Economics and Management of the University of Lucerne. Through these partnerships, synergies are used and joint projects are tested and realized. The University of Lucerne currently consists of three faculties: the faculties for Theology, Culture and Social Sciences, and Law.
In 2014, Academia Engelberg Foundation formed a partnership with the University of Lund in Sweden. The University was founded in 1666 but general studies, predecessor of today’s University, already existed in 1425.
The focus of the Foundation is the promotion of organizations in the areas of culture and arts, architecture, design, music, sports, education, and science. It has been a partner of Academia Engelberg Foundation since 2014.
