The participating universities work together in building-up of a research network along the Danube in thematic working groups in following areas:
- Smart grid
- Energy meteorology and energy efficiency
- Solar thermal
The foundation for the project of individual groups was formed at the kick-off meeting on September 27th 2013 in Györ. First of all, the participants from the four Danube countries Germany, Austria, Hungary and Serbia met up by the idea of their universities. Then they came together in five working groups and planned regular meetings, project concepts and their implementation until 2016. They collected these initial ideas how to proceed, the project content and options for information exchange.
