Promotion of the cross-border and transnational cooperation in the Danube Region has been one of the pillars of EUSDR ever since this macro-regional strategy was first implemented ten years ago. 

The Danube Salon organised as an online event on 11 June 2021 to mark this anniversary offered a great opportunity to present crucial dimensions that co-shape the European future: 

  • regional cooperation 
  • science 
  • youth and education.
