Information on the Danube School 2018 in Ulm

The Danube  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.

This year’s Danube School will be the fifth Danube School in Ulm/Neu Ulm, Germany. In the previous years we have gained access to the great venues in and around Ulm (Vöhlin Castle, City Hall Ulm, Excursion to IT Firm and House of Danube Ulm) and developed an outstanding programme. The Danube School 2018 in Ulm will take place between the 14th and 19th of October and will focus on Migration and Innovation in the Danube Region.
