Alpbach Report          September 2006

Otto Prohaska was invited to speak during August 2006 about Technology Transfer at the renowned annual “European Forum Alpbach” in Tyrol, Austria. 

Over 4000 participants discussed technology related issues as they are evolving in the worldwide competition in the markets of the fast-paced knowledge economy. Participants considered political, industrial, cultural, philosophical, and healthcare impacts on countries around the world.

Otto Prohaska’s presentation included the topics:
· Technology Transfer from Universities to companies in the U.S.
· Key elements of a successful Technology Transfer.

The presentation is available upon request.

The European Forum Congress Center is, in part, built underground to minimize visual impact on the environment. The spiral-shaped gallery with floor-to-ceiling glazing allows for a spectacular view of the surrounding mountains. 


The earliest documents which refer to Alpbach date from 1150.  The European Forum Alpbach was initiated in 1945 and developed into an annual conference where important present-time topics are reviewed and means of shaping the future are discussed.
