Salzburg Global Seminar Japan-India Transformative Technology Network Cohort 3 (Fully-funded to Austria): Apply Now

Global Seminar


Salzburg Global seminar programs bring together current and emerging leaders and change-makers worldwide to discuss global challenges. Led by world-renowned experts and stakeholders in fields of critical importance, our program model offers unique in-person and online opportunities that are very different from the typical professional, policy, or academic meetings and conferences.


  1. You live or work in India or Japan or are a citizen of India or Japan.
  2. You are passionate about enhancing social good in one or all of the following areas:
  • Health systems
  • Accessibility, mobility and inclusion
  • Living and livable communities
  1. In addition, you are passionate about applying user-centered technological innovation to make a positive social impact and enhance the UN SDGs. You work in one of the following areas:
  • Research and Development: academic and corporate researchers, private and government researchers, financers, and design specialists (products, places, policies);
  • Public Policy and Strategic Planning: national and municipal policy-makers, journalists, thought-leaders, educators, business strategists, and civil society activists and advocates;
  • Implementation and Commercialization: practitioners and technical specialists from technology, business, finance, and social entrepreneurial sectors.
  1. You are comfortable communicating in English, as this is the most common shared language of our international community and the working language of the Salzburg Global Seminar. We’re not expecting perfection, but you will need to be able to communicate your ideas and understand others.
  2. You demonstrate an open mind and a commitment to gaining new perspectives. Prior international experience is not required.
  3. We particularly encourage applications from female candidates working in the technology sector.

NOTE: If you are neither based in India nor Japan nor are an Indian or Japanese citizen, unfortunately, this program is not for you. However, we encourage you to stay up-to-date with our other program opportunities via the Salzburg Global Newsletter.


If you connected with the participant profile above, the Japan-India Transformative Technology Network is likely for you. The cohort of participants will be interdisciplinary and draw from the individual knowledge and experience of all those who are part of it. Therefore, we do not expect you to have extensive knowledge of both social issues and technology. Instead, we expect you to have a good knowledge of either one of the social challenge areas or a specific technology. In addition, we expect you to be open to learning from your peers.


Salzburg Global Seminar is now recruiting a new cohort of participants to join the program, which will start in late 2023. Successful applicants will be required to attend 2-3 hours of online meetings a month in the first stages of the program. This will be followed by an in-person meeting to be held between May 20-24, 2024. This meeting will be four days long and will require full participation. The in-person meeting will build on the work conducted online.

Following the in-person meeting, participants will be encouraged to work together on projects of common interest. The time required for this is to be determined by the participants themselves.

Participants are expected to maintain their usual employment during the program. Previous participants from the first cohort did not change their employment patterns.

Please note that any offers to participate in the program are extended to individuals only, not to organizations, and are thus strictly non-transferable.


All eligible applications will be reviewed by a selection committee made up of Salzburg Global staff and the program partner. The cohort will be carefully curated to ensure diversity in life and professional experience. Fellows will be selected based on their potential, vision for change, and commitment to making a difference in their communities. Offers to successful applicants are made to individuals and are not transferable. Please note that any offers to participate in the program are extended to individuals only, not to organizations, and are thus strictly non-transferable. All applicants will receive a response to their application.
