Danube SKILLS - Coming to the finish line


Dear readers, 


Our 30 months voyage under the flag of Danube SKILLS is coming to an end… it’s been a long passage, with many hardships and equal number of great moments of fulfilment and satisfaction when successfully overcoming together in a kindred spirit and urged by a common mission the obstacles we met. We leave behind, consistent with the commitment made at project start, a long list of project results which we hope will contribute to future integration of Danube navigation into modern transport solutions and to building a strong dedicated education and training system helping newcomers to embrace attractive and challenging careers in the inland navigation sector. Before bidding you farewell we thank you for your steady constant support all these years and kindly invite you to follow us on the project website, Twitter and Facebook for latest news on project final event on 13th June in Budapest!
