DRC Summer School

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.

Each year, the DRC Summer School is hosted by a different university and therefore offers a variety of settings. We are looking for young BA, MA and PhD level scientist from Social, Human and Political Sciences, who are interested in the

region, have scientific records or intend to have deeper knowledge about the Danube Region.

  • Broaden your horizon and knowledge

We regret to announce that, regarding measures to combat the spread of COVID-19 disease, we are forced to postpone the 17th edition of the DRC Summer School scheduled to take place 6-12 July 2020 to 2021. We will announce a new date in due time.

 

We are fully aware of the complexity of the challenges faced by universities at present, and therefore we have decided to take this step to save the additional efforts of all people involved. We very much regret this decision, since the DRC Summer Schools represent a long record of successful cooperation among young promising scientists from the Danube Region. However, we believe that the positive track of the DRC Summer Schools will be followed up next year when the situation is settled.

 

We thank you for your understanding and are looking forward to the 17th DRC Summer School in 2021!
