Autumn Academy - apply now

Contact between the generations has always been a great concern of the Academia Engelberg. This has not changed with the realignment.

With the Autumn Academy, the Academia Engelberg now offers a two-day event within the ENGELBERG DIALOGUES 2018. The aim of the Academy is to provide a platform for graduate students and post docs from all academic fields to present and to discuss papers related to broadly defined costs and/or benefits of intra-European migration and their policy implications.

Interested graduate students and post docs are invited to submit abstracts by no later than 28 February 2018.

The authors of the 20 best papers will then be invited by no later than 30 June 2018 to participate in the Autumn Academy. The three best papers in the view of the Scientific Committee will be awarded cash prizes ranging from 500 to 2000 Swiss francs.

Travel costs, accommodations and meals of the 20 participants will be covered by the Academia Engelberg.

All important information about the Autumn Academy can be found here.

Donators and Partners

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.

Helvetia is a quality-oriented comprehensive insurance company with over 150 years of experience. Academia Engelberg Foundation is convinced it will be able to use important synergies from the partnership starting in 2015.

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.
