The Danube Limes Brand Project

The World Heritage designation on the Danube Limes heritage would guarantee a longterm and sustainable protection and development and also ensure a proper and adaquate utilization of the cultural heritage resources and a great increase in awareness raising. More and better collaboration between the Danube countries and their relevant institutions in the framework of the European Strategy for the Danube Region as a flagship project will foster the establishment of a common cultural route, a joint action plan and a common marketing strategy.
• Long-term and sustainable preservation of Limes monuments through nominating new frontier section for World Heritage status in the Lower Danube countries
• Development of a joint action strategy for the Danube Limes from the Black Forest to the Black Sea
• Create brand modules for a Danube Limes destination
• Interregional cooperation in developing, improving and presenting individual Limes sites




Project SAGITTARIUS introduces a novel concept to utilize different types of cultural values of natural and cultural heritage resources as a lever for development, paving the way for entrepreneurial innovation. Integration of academic and research institutions, public-private sector, local communities and individuals in preserving and promoting the natural and cultural heritage. The project is preparing to portable platform of knowledge and experience in human capital that will be useful in areas of SEE.
The project's aim is to promote the natural and cultural heritage of small, mostly rural areas. These areas are beyond the well-known and crowded tourist attractions. Despite the rich and well-preserved heritage, remain on the periphery and unrecognizable. Many areas are underdeveloped, especially young people move because they cannot find employment opportunities. At the same time they don't identify common values and entrepreneurial opportunities in the local natural and cultural heritage.
The Project Area is affected by a series of common shortcomings, faced by all project partners with very different cultures and contexts each. While major fame heritage assets are facing overuse and decay, peripheral ones remain unrecognized, led to territorial depopulation, brain drain and underdevelopment.
Globalizing economies are detaching younger generations from community roots and values. They thus suffer a cultural discontinuity, especially obvious in the attitude of younger and repatriated populations.



IT Forest project

Universities and their students should be aware of their important role in addressing the problems around them and therefore should play an active role in transferring their knowledge by generating efficient solutions for society. This IP project has presented a specific problem to a multidisciplinary international group of students, giving them the opportunity to play an active role in finding a solution. In this case, the project has contributed to the evaluation of the forest biomass as a source of renewable energy in the rural areas and the assessment of this as a possible solution for the lack of economic opportunities in these areas.

The MAIN OBJECTIVE has been to familiarize the students with the use of the forest biomass for energy to promote new sustainable economic opportunities in rural areas. Also, to do so from a global point of view, that is, bringing together different disciplines and several actors related to this issue.

The SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES of the project have included:

• Implicate the university students in having an active role and proposing solutions to the real, current and local problems
• Involve students in tackling an actual challenge related to their specific discipline knowledge
• Promote student collaboration in different engineering fields (agriculture/energy/industry/environmental) to obtain an integral solution to a certain problem
• Stimulate a global point of view together with an engineering solution by taking into account several dimensions: social, economic, environmental, etc
• Bring students to the reality of the rural areas and the energy dependence
• Improve the student language skills and their mobility
• Create a base for future cooperation among the participants (universities, enterprises, local administration): bilateral agreements between universities, student internships in enterprises, student final year projects, identification of future European calls for a joint proposal, ideas for specific training courses, etc.
