Symposion Dürnstein

Short description

The Symposion Dürnstein provides space for scientific discourse and networking. Its goal is to engage with a broad audience outside of academia. During a period of three days, international experts with different cultural backgrounds are invited to talk about a specific socially relevant topic and critically analyze their perspectives. A publication about this event is published every year. In addition, an arts project regarding the specific topic is realised. The participating audience mostly comes from the region of Wachau/Krems. The selected topics are related to the region, for example, in 2019 the event was about cultural identity and directly related to the UNESCO world heritage site ”Wachau“.
