The European Danube Academy (EDA) has initiated the Danube School Series in 2014. Apart from the DSS-Project the EDA generally fosters cooperation in science, education, culture, politics, and media in the Danube area. With its network and projects the EDA contributes to mutual cultural exchange and to the integration process in the South-Eastern European countries.

Since 2008, the EDA has become one of the major Danube platforms for the presentation and exchange of ideas, opinions, and information from all over the Danube region. With its manifold projects and publications, it is actively contributing to the success of the EU-Strategy for the Danube Region by fostering exchange, science and education.
