Aims & Pathways

Die Arbeitsweise von ACADEMIA SUPERIOR

We outline new ways for the future of Upper Austria

ACADEMIA SUPERIOR – Insti­tute for Future Stud­ies is a non-prof­it asso­ci­a­tion with the task of iden­ti­fy­ing and ana­lyz­ing cur­rent chal­lenges at a local, nation­al and inter­na­tion­al lev­el and infer­ring rec­om­men­da­tions for action for deci­sion-mak­ers in Upper Aus­tria.

As a bipar­ti­san insti­tu­tion, ACADEMIA SUPERIOR devel­ops rec­om­men­da­tions to best pre­pare the coun­try for the future.

To achieve this, we ana­lyze the present and ask: Which changes have sur­prised us the most recent­ly? And what impact will these changes have on our lives and our soci­ety?

ACADEMIA SUPERIOR — Thinking ahead und acting

The sym­po­sium is the core of our work. Experts from var­i­ous dis­ci­plines are invit­ed to dis­cuss and debate the great­est dis­cov­er­ies, devel­op­ments and sur­pris­es of recent years in their respec­tive dis­ci­plines.

The results are then spec­i­fied in the con­text of open dis­cus­sions on the Inter­net, in work­shops, events, pub­li­ca­tions and research assign­ments. Pos­si­ble solu­tions for Upper Aus­tria are made-to-mea­sure.

An impor­tant idea at ACADEMIA SUPERIOR is that sci­en­tists from a wide range of dis­ci­plines are brought togeth­er to dis­cuss the future. This work goes beyond the dai­ly activ­i­ties at the uni­ver­si­ty, beyond indi­vid­ual dis­ci­plines. It is some kind of aca­d­e­m­ic exchange that unites and tran­scends dis­ci­pliens. That is ACADEMIA SUPERIOR.
