Danube:Future Interdisciplinary School

Cultural and social implications of global change on the Danube River Basin

Donau-Universität Krems - Audimax
14.07.2017 - 21.07.2017
The 2017 Danube:Future Interdisciplinary School (DIS) - which takes place at the Danube University Krems from 14th to 21st of July - gives 28 PhD- and Post-doc-researchers the possibility to discuss the topic of "Cultural and social implications of global change on the Danube River Basin" and develop research proposals for Horizon 2020.

Global change processes, like climate change, digitalization, migration movements and economic crises, are among the greatest challenges of our time and also shaping the Danube macro-region as a specifically challenging region of Europe. Against this background, science as well as different stakeholders from society, politics and business are obliged to think about a sustainable future and resilient societies.


This year the Danube:Future Interdisciplinary School (DIS) gives PhD-students and young scientists from Alps-Adriatic Rector’s Conference (AARC) and the Danube Rector’s Conference (DRC) universities the opportunity to discuss these issues – with a particular focus on the Danube region and the question of resilience and social peace – and to develop research proposals within this broad context. The Danube:Future Interdisciplinary School offers a well-coordinated program of high-profile lectures, methodological inputs regarding interdisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity, thematic excursions and professionally supervised working phases for project proposal writing.


The Danube University Krems looks forward to welcome 28 participants in Krems for a fruitful Danube:Future Interdisciplinarity School between 14th and 21st of July.
