The DANUrB+ project funded by the Interreg Danube Transnational Programme was launched on 1st July 2020 to foster resilient use of cultural heritage and resources of the peripheral and border regions along the Danube. In 30 months, it will create new opportunities for attractiveness in selected settlements and shrinking areas and activate underused cultural heritage to strengthen the Danube cultural identity.
Ecological resizing through urban and rural actions & dialogues for GHG mitigation in the Lower Danube Floodplains & Danube Delta (EDAPHIC-BLOOM DANUBE), aims to boost capacities for GHG mitigation in the target region, through organic soils conservation/restoration and enhancing energy efficiency in the built environment sector.
Promoting Technology Innovation in Environmental Monitoring and Modelling forAssessment of Fish Stock and Non-fish Resources (TIMMOD) is a EU funded project financed within the Black Sea Basin Program 2014-2020, under Priority 2. Promote coordination of environmental protection and joint reduction of marine litter in the Black Sea Basin, objective 2.1 Improve joint environmental monitoring.
The main goal of the project is to create a comprehensive spatio-cultural network, a “Danube Сultural Promenade” connecting all communities along the river, unifying these into one tourism destination brand, offering thematic routes and developing possibilities that can increase the number of visitors and can prolong their stay in the region.
RainSolutions assesses innovative nature-based solutions (NBS) for the sustainable management of nature, addressing a combination of societal challenges such as climate change, water security, water pollution, human well-being and risk management.
Provide a pro-active and personalized citizen-centric public service application that will encourage citizens’ involvement, to raise awareness on flood risks and enable collective risk mitigation solutions and response actions.
Scent will engage citizens in environmental monitoring and enable them to become the ‘eyes’ of the policy makers. In doing so citizens will support the monitoring of land-cover/use changes using their smartphones and tablets.
The CyanoAlert service will be a global service for the environmental authorities and commercial sector, concerned by health risks and quality of water resources.
Timespan: 2013 – 2015, the project Beneficiary is “Dunărea de Jos” University of Galati and Consortium include 5 partners
WP3 – assessment of the land cover/use changes for different scenarios in the Black Sea Catchment, and WP5 – Impacts on selected Societal Benefit Areas, biodiversity and wetland ecosystems of the Department of Natural Resources,
The overall objective of the FLOODRISK project was to develop and produce high quality, stakeholder oriented flood risk maps for the transnational Danube river floodplains to provide adequate risk information for spatial planning and economic requests.

GMES initial Operations (GIO) Land Monitoring 2011 – 2013 in the framework of regulation (EU) No 911/2010 Pan-EU Component. Timespan: 2011 – 2013, DDNI roll: National coordinator, 11 persons
CERES advances a cause-and-effect understanding of how climate change will influence Europe’s most important fish and shellfish resources and the economic activities depending on them.
The current approach to biodiversity assessment is based on morpho-taxonomy. This approach has many drawback such as being time consuming, limited in temporal and spatial resolution, and error-prone due to variation of individual taxonomic expertise of the analysts.
REstoration and prognosis of PEAT formation in fens – linking diversity in plant functional traits to soil biological and biogeochemical processes
The study spans four countries covering both the least and the most disturbed sites of all major fen regions in the EU. In order to compare undrained, drained and rewetted fens, we will analyse ecosystem processes at four study areas, supplemented by an ex-situ mesocosm and laboratory experiments.
Managing and restoring aquatic EcologicAl corridors for migratory fiSh species in the danUbe RivEr baSin (MEASURES)
Sturgeons and other migratory fish species represent a historic, economic and natural heritage of the Danube River Basin and are indicators of the ecological status of aquatic ecosystems, especially of the functionality of ecological corridors. Their populations have suffered substantially from overfishing, pollution, habitat destruction and disruption of their migration routes. The need for their conservation is recognized at a high political and management level (EUSDR-PA 06, Biodiversity, DRBMP).
WASTEnet is a network joint action, which aims at motivating the widest possible audience of local and regional authorities of the participating Black Sea countries to develop and apply Natural Treatment Systems (NTS), and in particular Constructed Wetlands (CWs), for the wastewater treatment of their remote rural communities.
ResponSEAble is funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program and has 15 partners from around the European Union. This diverse group has been trying to figure out how to connect people to their seas and to help them better understand the complex human-ocean relationship. The reason is simple: if people have better knowledge they will make responsible decisions – in other words, they will become “ocean literate”.
The project “Creating Interfaces” (2018 – 2021) addresses capacity building for the urban food-water-energy (FWE) nexus, facilitating cooperation and knowledge exchange among the stakeholders (city government, science, business and citizens/civil society). It develops and tests innovative approaches for local knowledge co-creation and participation in three mid-size cities on water: Tulcea (Romania), Wilmington (USA) and Slupsk (Poland).
