With ACADEMIA SUPERIOR, we now have an instrument to not only think about the future but also tackle future visions – not just a think tank, but also a do tank. At ACADEMIA SUPERIOR, the best minds should work together: people who are internationally successful, people who are well established and renowned in science.
Univ.-Prof. Dr. Markus Hengstschläger
With ACADEMIA SUPERIOR, we have created a very special think tank. Surprise Factors are a key element in this think tank. Our claim is to work scientifically on problem solutions and to derive tangible results. We are living in an unscripted time, where predictions are becoming more and more difficult. With our Surprise Factors concept, we draw the lessons from the recent past and the present! That’s the exciting thing about ACADEMIA SUPERIOR. I am very proud that this forward-looking idea was born here in Upper Austria.
