From 2023, PULSAQUA will participate in the Danube4All project The Danube4All project is funded by the European Union’s ‘Horizon Europe’ funding programme. Through this programme, the EU funds (research) projects that contribute to complex challenges.
In the Danube4All project, many organizations will work together to research and restore ecosystems in and around the Danube river. Many renowned international research institutions, such as BOKU (Vienna), the University of Technology and Economics Budapest, GeoEcoMar (Bucharest), and OSENU (Odessa) participate in this project. In total, 48 different organizations from all across Europe participate in this project. In addition to universities, many nonprofit organizations, startups, and governmental organizations will work on this project to restore the ecosystems in and around Europe’s second-longest river.
This project is divided in multiple ‘Work Packages’, and PULSAQUA will lead the Empowered inhabitants, communities and Citizen Science Work Package. In this specific Work Package, PULSAQUA and its project partners will focus on public engagement, involvement of local communities, and co-creation during all stages of the project. We want to ensure that communities around the Danube basin are involved and also able to participate in different stages of the research that will be conducted and the activities that will be organized.
We look very much forward to this collaboration. It promises to be an exciting and multifaceted project!
More information about this project will be made available soon!
