The European Commission and scientists and policy makers from the 14 Danube Region countries launched six scientific clusters last week to support economic development in the region. The six clusters will focus on: water; land & soil; bio-energy; air; data exchange & harmonisation; and smart specialisation. The clusters will provide scientific evidence to support the Danube Strategy, and will also serve to foster scientific cooperation across the region.
