Survey for University

SURVEY FOR UNIVERSITIES

Dear Madams and Sirs, dear Colleagues,

Danube:Future is a flagship project of the EU strategy for the Danube Region, and was established as a joint initiative of the DRC (Danube Rectors' Conference) and AARC (Alps Adriatic Rectors' Conference) in 2013. The project is a networking endeavor for all the Universities and we are working to provide useful tools and services for scientists and for the research community. Danube:Future focuses on a sustainable development issues of the Danube River Basin, driven by the role of Natural and Cultural Heritage (please, have a look at this presentation: www.danubefuture.eu/project). In the past five years we have successfully organized several networking activities and international, interdisciplinary schools for PhD-Students and young post-researchers. We have established the Danube:Future Knowledge base, a strategic tool for scientists working in this thematic framework. At this stage it includes especially abstracts of publications; further services are planned.

To get familiar with sustainability research and training in the Danube River Basin, we would like to ask for your response to a brief survey. It targets all DRC and AARC Universities, through their representatives (Vice-rectors for International Cooperation, Research and Training, as well as the International Relationship offices). We would like to receive feedback from each University what Danube:Future should offer and, increase our network through new contacts to scholars. One relevant document concerning the needs, challenges and opportunities developing a sustainability-oriented knowledge society of the Danube River Base is the WHITE PAPER, available at the home page of the website: www.danubefuture.eu

We kindly ask you to fill this form by December 15th, 2017 and we thank you in advance for your time! We plan to report first results of the survey in January 2018.

In case you have further questions, please contact Dr Gertrud Haidvogl ( gertrud.haidvogl@boku.ac.at ), University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU) or survey@danubefuture.eu .
