Dear Sir or Madam,
a common European Higher Education Area has already become reality. This necessitates an increasing professionalization of management structures as well as collaborations between universities. The overall objective of this process is to establish a consistent and effi cient science and research management.
The universities along the Danube are closely linked due to their common history. The Danube, Europe‘s second largest river, flows through ten countries; no other river in the world flows through more countries. Hence, the Danube is one of Europe‘s oldest and most signifi cant trading routes. Thus it has connected a variety of communities and cultures for centuries. This is the reason why the European Union recognizes and supports the outstanding importance of this region.

Potential applicants are advised to carefully check the availability of the different funds and potential launching of new calls starting from 2019, already from the starting of the preparation of the seed money project, as the main goal is to actually implement in practice the developed projects for the benefit of the Danube Region.
