The goal of the project DONAUHANSE is to establish a network of cities, which provides sound solutions to similar problems with the greatest possible benefit for all participating cities and regions along the Danube.

Aims of the DonauHanse Network of Danube Cities

The aim of the network defined in 2007 is to establish DonauHanse as a sustainable engine for economic, touristic, infrastructural and cultural cooperation in Europe and beyond the current borders of the European Union.

To reach these goals DonauHanse traces in the programming period 2007-2013 the following goals:

  • Integration of additional South East European Danube cities,
  • Intensification and extension of the co-operation between the Danube cities and their surrounding regions under the DonauHanse and by the means of other joint projects;
  • Continuation and expansion of the Information and Communication Platform www.donauhanse.net;
  • Promotion of further project ideas to sustainably increase freight volumes on the Danube;
  • Develop and realise project ideas created by the members of DonauHanse;
  • Implementation of CUPA (Co-operative Urban Planning Approaches);
  • Intensification of knowledge exchange between the members of DonauHanse;
