The Danube School Series is a short-term study programme for postgraduate students and young professionals to learn and discuss facts, challenges and projects of the Danube Region. It is organised by the European Danube Academy in cooperation with several universities in the Danube Region (University of Tübingen, HNU Neu-Ulm, University of Novi Sad, Andrassy University Budapest and University of Ruse). The Danube Schools 2021 are thus part of the Danube School Network, which consists of various Danube school events. Four Danube Schools are planned for 2021, funded by the programme „Polyphonic Memory, European Heritage, Common Future“ of the BKM (Federal Commissioner for Culture and the Media).
