Project Management and Entrepreneurship for Sustainable Development of the Regions in the Danube River Basin
DIS 2018 introduced to regional development as an important topic for the countries in the Danube River Basin which are characterized by significant disproportions in their economic and social development. The school familiarized participants with the specificity of regional developments within the Danube Macro-Region, as well as with the strengths and weaknesses of selected regions in the Danube River Basin to identify opportunities for cooperation in the areas of entrepreneurship and project management. The program focused on the theory and practice of project management and entrepreneurship as possible tools for overcoming the disparity. An international cast of lecturers from the universities of DRC and AARC (the organizing universities and other universities of the network) and local experts ensured that students got up-to-date, place-specific instruction. PhD-students and young scientists discussed the above-mentioned issues and developed research proposals within this broad context. Two half day excursions made students familiar with the Natural Park ‘Rusenski Lom’ and cross-border cooperation between Romania and Bulgaria in the region of Ruse and Giurgiu.
