The First International Danube:Future Workshop. Challenges and Potentials for a Sustainable Development in the Danube Region: Contributing to Horizon 2020
Danube:Future Network was developed in 2012 under the coordination of Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt (AAU), University of Trieste (UNITS) and University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna (BOKU) and later, in 2013, it was adopted as a flagship project of the Priority Area 7 of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region. Local, regional, national and supranational initiatives in interdisciplinary sustainable research combined with capacity building and networking contribute to the sustainable development of the Danube River Basin. The sustainable development of the Danube River Basin involves elements of natural and cultural heritage, perceived both as an opportunity and as a challenge. Aimed at encouraging the member states of the Danube Region to cooperate, in line with the EU recommendations, Danube:Future Network will organize the first international Danube:Future Workshop on the role of cultural and natural heritage for the sustainable development of the Danube Region in April 2015 at the Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt facilities.
