Voices from the first High Performance Trip:

"The Marshall Plan Foundation has organized an outstanding event. As part of the first Marshall Plan trip to Linz, we had the opportunity to get to know very interesting companies and also to exchange ideas with other Marshall Plan Fellows. All in all, I would recommend everyone to register for the trip and exchange ideas with other Fellows."

- Moritz Stifter

„Participating in the High-Performance Trip following my research visit to the U.S. has been an enriching experience. Engaging with fellow exchange students and visionary leaders from Austrian industries surpassed conventional learning, leading to insightful discussions that widened my perspective on leadership and the value of diverse viewpoints. Moreover, connecting with Austrian industry professionals not only provided valuable insights but also inspired my future career endeavors.”
