Project description

Period: 2019-2022


Danubian SMCs builds upon the cooperation established within the Interreg project DANUrB and aims to bring together students and teachers from various universities along the Danube. The project enables the exchange of skills and expertise in various cities and develops a common framework to assess, analyse and plan small and medium-sized cities from Germany to Romania.

A key premise behind the project is that applied novel and creative teaching approaches makes it possible to establish a common perspective in dealing with the heterogeneity of cities along the Danube. The project facilitates the development of mutual data acquisition, analysis and visualisation frameworks, an exchange on the similar and different challenges cities face in different regions along the river, and a platform for new perspectives and approaches to tackle these matters.

The project consortium – led by the Ion Mincu University of Architecture and Urbanism – is developing three Intellectual Outputs as guidelines focussing on innovative and creative teaching methods regarding data collection and assessment and on evaluating the inclusive development of Danubian`s small and medium-sized cities.

During the course of the project, the partner universities are organising various intensive programmes for students and teachers in their cities. Read more…, opens an external URL in a new window
