Rights accessRestricted access - publisher's policy
The major outcome of this document is a proposal for a new education program for the Danube- Black Sea (DBS) region. In principle the task focuses on different levels of education, namely (i) undergraduate students; (ii) postgraduate students (MSc, PhD); (iii) Postdoctoral fellows; and (iv) scientists. In addition, the requirements of technicians supporting all four groups are addressed within the framework of lifelong learning. Specialised training for professionals working in administrations (environment, navigation) is another goal of this agenda. The proposal for the education agenda is achieved through an analysis of the gaps and opportunities for an integrated approach towards a better alignment of international education and Human Resource development in the Danube Basin. Developments in the DBS include a number of initiatives and activities from before and after the 1990s (the fall of the Iron Curtain). In this context, the document reflects on the challenges including access to education programmes, new developments (including the credit transfer system) and the language requirements necessary for more substantial international cooperation. The document reflects on stakeholder opinions and provides a general discussion of the existing programs in the field of higher education and professional training(...).
