Danube School Ship
Equal opportunities and extensive mobility for IWT labour force in the Danube corridor are also targeted by development of a common concept of Danube school ship.
Although training ships are quite frequently used in Western Europe, there is none for the entire Danube corridor. The hands-on experience provided by a school ship cannot be replaced by any other teaching method.

Such a training ship commonly used by education institutions along the Danube would provide proper training of the personnel operating ships and moreover it would build students character for a life on board.

The Danube School Ship concept developed within this project is based on the best practices adopted from Western Europe and it will focus on various “scenarios” in terms of administrative (ownership), financial (associated costs), operational (type and size of vessel, navigation route, voyage calendar) matters so as to reach best possible solution to prepare youngsters for a successful career in inland navigation.
