The AE Budapest Hub kicked off the year with a successful workshop

The Hub's Danube Region thematic mission set out to promote an EU programme designed to serve the region

On 8 February 2024, the “Danube Region” thematic mission of the AE Budapest Hub organized a webinar about the EU’s “Interreg Danube Region Programme”, explaining the basic features of this programme, giving advice on successful proposal writing and showcasing successful “Interreg” projects. The title of the event was:
Interreg Danube Region Programme - Examples and Best Practices from Projects Monitoring Microplastics in the Danube River Basin


The event sought on the one hand to facilitate knowledge transfer about river microplastic pollution in the region, while on the other hand to inspire researchers from the region to apply for Interreg projects. The next submission deadline for the Programme is 3 April 2024.

The online workshop was recorded, the full video recording is available on the YouTube channel of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. The speakers of the workshop kindly offered to make their presentations available to the public:
