DAReC representatives will take part in 2015 DIAnet INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL - The role of cultural heritage for the sustainable development of the Danube Region in Gorizia from March 14th – 23rd, 2015

In the period 2013-2015, the University of Trieste in cooperation with the Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt, the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU) Vienna and the University of Novi Sad, offer a unique opportunity for young career researchers to familiarize themselves with issues pertinent to the sustainable development of the Danube River Basin.

DIAnet International Schools are part of the Capacity Building Module of the Danube:Future project, a Flagship Project of the EUSDR - the European Union Strategy for the Danube Region, in the Priority Area Knowledge Society.

Danube:Future is a joint network project of the Alps-Adriatic Rector’s Conference (AARC) and the Danube Rector’s Conference (DRC). It aims at capacity building in the Danube River Basin (DRB) and at providing networking to aid the development common research projects for a sustainable future of the DRB.

During the School, students will gain knowledge about the role of cultural heritage for the sustainable development of the Danube river basin (DRB). By linking a specific area, i.e. the Danube River Basin, a target area of a macro-regional strategy of the EU, with the Grand Challenges of Horizon 2020 and building an interdisciplinary network of young scholars, DIAnet schools contribute to the preparation and workability of Horizon 2020.

By offering experience in interdisciplinary group work, DIAnet schools engage in capacity building in a crucial area and at a crucial moment. By mapping the EUSDR challenges onto Horizon 2020, DIAnet schools pave the way for successful participation in Horizon 2020. This is a unique opportunity to learn and interact in interdisciplinary groups with a high-level international faculty.
