It was August 2000, and the conference was designed as a Davos-like meeting of the minds, but for the leaders of Austria. This annual meeting of Alpbach1-co-sponsored by the Austria Research Centers, the Federation of Austria Industry, and the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation-was a week-long activity dedicated to “Knowledge as a Production Factor.” Hundreds were in attendance, with sessions ranging from Nobel laureates to children (ages 8 to 18) who participated in Junior Alpbach.
