Danube Knowledge Network
Danube Knowledge Network is a cooperation platform bringing together around 250 partners representing specialized education and training institutions, authorities and stakeholders from the business sector such as shipping companies, logistics service providers, ports, barge and port operators.

Its main goal is to provide a dynamic framework for transnational cooperation between its members in order to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and transfer of best practices and to ultimately offer a comprehensive overview of the inland waterway transport sector in the Danube region.

DKN not only introduces stakeholders to one another but also provides further networking possibilities between the education system and the labour market, between public and private companies, between relevant river organisations and policy makers.

Dedicated DKN Forum News section of the website provides easy access to latest developments and innovations in the IWT sector and also acts as a direct communication interface for all DKN partners, allowing education and training providers to adjust their offers and teaching methods to actual needs of the IIWT labour force market and ultimately provide better trained personnel matching the increasingly higher and more exigent demand of the employers in the IWT sector.

Responsible persons in each Hint country offer guidance and additional information in national language on topics posted for discussion, access to project documents, national and international events, calendar of project workshops, collect from DKN members appropriate inputs on how they want to be supported in their activity or feedback on issues of interest and proposals for further improvement of the platform and communication between its members.
