About Frontiers of Dialogue

Frontiers of Dialogue (#FoD17) is a public panel discussion event series held throughout the year at some of Vienna's greatest locations. We invite you to engage in intellectual debates on timely, relevant and actionable topics related to business, international affairs, science and technology.

We place emphasis on promoting trans-border experts and thought leaders particularly in the private sector and civil society to address matters of common interest and immediate concern.
