The Danube Transnational Programme itself, its stakeholders and the present and potential partner institutions need to have a thorough knowledge of the Danube region to be reflected into innovative projects with successful results. With that purpose, the programme bodies have planned to organise a series of annual events focused on specific themes relevant for the Danube region and to be addressed in the DTP calls for proposals. A specific theme covering several thematic priorities of the programme will be selected every year.

The thematically-focused annual events aim to become a forum to stimulate discussion on the selected theme with the help of experts on the covered topics, programme stakeholders, interested institutions and organisations, potential applicants and project partners. To achieve better project results and better preparation of future calls are among the aims of the event.

In the 2016 edition of the Annual Event the selected theme is ‘Transnational management, use and valorisation of water related resources’. The theme is reflected in the event title: BLUE DANUBE - Danube Transnational Programme: Key instrument for supporting water as a transnational resource. The selected 2016 theme is conceived from an integrated perspective interlinked with the four priority axes of the Danube Transnational Programme.

The Danube Transnational Programme joins the European Cooperation Day initiative with this event, in which the benefits of territorial cooperation in the use, management and valorisation of water in the Danube region will be highlighted.
