On February 21, the Danube University Krems concluded a cooperation agreement with the International Medical Association Bulgaria (IMAB) for the coming three years. Its objective is the exchange of students, visiting professors and lecturers between the Universities of Krems and Varna, carrying out joint research and education projects and fostering the knowledge transfer between Austria and Bulgaria by means of working groups and workshops. "This cooperation is also in line with the statutory obligation of the Danube University Krems to be active in Eastern Europe", says Rector Heinrich Kern. The next milestones of this cooperation between Austria and Bulgaria will be meetings of representatives of both universities in Varna in May and in Krems in June. The first exchange of students and visiting professors is scheduled to take place in fall 2008.

A declaration of intent envisaging extensive cooperation was signed between the Danube University Krems and the University of Brighton on February 14.
