The DRC Summer School project was initiated by IDM (Institute for the Danube Region and Central Europe) and International House Pécs in 2003 to promote regional co-operation among young social
scientists. Its general aim is the establishment of a network of young scientists who deal with the issue of regional co-operation as Central European perspective, and thus the
institutionalisation of the Summer School for the future.
The 10th summer school was another step towards enhancing and deepening scientific co-operations in Central Europe, among the project partners, i.e. institutions from the V4 countries, the
Ukraine, Austria and some Western Balkan countries. Since 2007 the IDM is represented in the project by Dr. Susan Milford whereas IDResearch Ltd. is represented by Dr. István Tarrósy, managing
director, and former managing director of the Regional European Information and Education Centre PBC who has been implementing the project with the Austrian partners for nine years.
The 13th edition of the Summer School lies its focus on the countries of the Danube region as the Danube Rectors’ Conference provides a platform for the collaboration of 70 institutions of higher
education from 13 countries in the Danubian region.
