CULTURAL AND SOCIAL IMPLICATIONS OF GLOBAL CHANGE ON THE DANUBE RIVER BASIN
(Krems, July 14th – 21st, 2017)
From July 14th to 21st 2017 the forth edition of the Training School of Danube:Future will be organized in Krems, Austria.
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.English is the official language of the School.
DIS 2017 can be offered to you at minimal cost: living expenses are covered by the Cooperation Fund of the Central European Initiative. You might also be eligible for travel assistance by your home university. The participation to the School is free: no fees are required.
