2017 DANUBE:FUTURE Interdisciplinary School - Call for Application
"Cultural and social implications of global change on the Danube River Basin" - Krems, July 14th – 21st, 2017
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.
