Research power along the Danube
Between its source in the Black Forest and its mouth on the Black Sea, the Danube traverses 2,872 kilometres and shares shores with ten countries. The Danube Rectors' Conference (DRC) is a strong network of 56 universities in this region. Our aim is to improve higher education in teaching and research, and the advancement of our member universities by establishing sustainable contacts.
The Danubius Award is intended to honour persons with extraordinary achievements in their scientific activities in relation to the Danube Region. This year our former DRC President Prof. Dr Miroslav Vesković received the Danubius Award. Founder of this award are the Institute for the Danube Region and Central Europe in cooperation with the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science and Research (BMWF).
Our network announces a video contest for all students of the DRC member universities. We want to increase the visibility of the DRC and its activities in the Danube Region. Are you a student of a DRC member university? Show your creativity to us, make a video, and win prizes. The deadline for uploading the video is October 15, 2013 (23.00 Central European time).
