The Danube Summer School is a short term study program for postgraduate students and young professionals, who learn and discuss about facts, challenges and projects of the Danube Region. It is organised by the European Danube Academy in cooperation with several Universities of the Danube Region and takes place in Ulm and Neu-Ulm. About 25 participants meet for one week to discuss with academics and decision makers what happens in the Danube region and how to shape it for the better. The program as well as accommodation and catering is free of charge.

Tthe European Danube Academy will cover the accommodation and catering costs during the Summer School.

The application phase is over.

The Danube Summer School 2017 in Ulm/Neu-Ulm is organised in close cooperation with the Ludwig-Uhland-Institut für Empirische Kulturwissenschaft, the Department for Historical and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Tübingen.

The Institute

The Ludwig-Uhland-Institut für Empirische Kulturwissenschaft is the Department for Historical and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Tübingen and enjoys a high degree of name recognition, nationally, internationally, and within the university and the local area. The name of the Institute has been well known since the early postwar era and in the last four decades, the distinctive name of the discipline has also become a trademark. The “LUI” and its field of “EKW” as it is understood here together represent a modernization of the field of Volkskunde (Folklore Studies), an opening-up of the discipline, and an international orientation that is unique within Germany and a model for other institutions.

The Ludwig Uhland Institute is located in the middle of the university town of Tübingen: the Institute’s offices are housed in two buildings in the Tübingen Castle complex. Lectures are generally held in the university’s main building. The Institute has important collections encompassing texts, pictures, photographs, audio and video recordings, and objects, which are used in teaching and research.
