DONAUREGIONEN+ Final Conference Registration Form

The Ministry of Transport, Construction and Regional Development of the Slovak Republic, as a Lead Partner, together with the other Project Partners would like to invite you to the FINAL CONFERENCE of the "DONAUREGIONEN+ project -
The Spatial Development Concept of Interregional Co-operation in the Danube Space"
within the South East Europe Programme (SEE/A/246/4.2/X).

General project objective was the description of the potential of the middle a lower part of the Danube and its importance for the Europe as important development corridor. The specific objective represents elaboration of the Joint Donauregionen Development Strategy (D+ Strategy). This requires common cooperation of planners of involved countries. The specific objective of the project was achieved through the combination of (1) bottom-up approach activities based on identification and evaluation of existing strategies (1a) of Danube NUTS3 regions, (1b) Danube Cross-Danube or Cross-Border regions and (2) the top-down approach activities connected with identification and evaluation of relevant spatial planning and regional policies, documents and systems of (2a) European and (2b) national importance. Project represents an attempt of integration of existing relevant European, national, regional and key local strategies in order to support Danube regions, towns and ports, which are in bad economic situation, but have the potential for sustainable development as centers or ports of the Danube. To achieve this, the D+ project has developed a D+ WEB portal with two planning servers (D+WEB Server and D+GIS Server) in order to improve the communication between the planners in Danube region, specifically in the sectors of Natural Conditions, Settlement Structures & Human Resources, Transport & Technical infrastructure and Economy, which represents the main result of the project.
