DANUBE4all - Call for Proposals: 5 Associated Regions

By promoting the improvement of ecological status, biodiversity, and ecosystem connectivity through the development and implementation of innovative Win-Win Nature Based Solutions, DANUBE4all aims to enhance the free-flowing status of rivers and floodplains, reduce flood and drought risks, and improve sediment and biota continuity. In addition to research activities at the three Demonstration Sites in the Danube River Basin, the project will also provide GIS and Citizen Science tools for upscaling restoration actions via ten Synergy Sites and transfer outcomes to five Associated Regions by developing Replication Roadmaps for restoration action. 

Call for Proposals 

We are pleased to announce the launch of a call for Associated Regions to participate in the DANUBE4all project. We are looking for 5 Associated Regions that we can provide with technical assistance to use the outcomes and knowledge of DANUBE4all to prepare roadmaps, plans, and projects to restore freshwater ecosystems in their region. To achieve this, we will implement special formats, workshops, and exchange activities to continuously share DANUBE4all outcomes and knowledge. All developed tools and restoration measures, as well as the development and draft versions of the Danube Basin Restoration Action Plan, will be fully open, usable, and made applicable to the Associated Regions. By joining us as an Associated Region, you will have the opportunity to access our expertise, knowledge, and tools to develop your own roadmap, plan, or project to restore freshwater ecosystems in your region. We believe that by working together, we can achieve our shared goal of restoring freshwater ecosystems and promoting sustainability across Europe.


The grant each associated region can apply for is up to €100,000.

 List of type of activities that can receive financial support:

  • Revitalisation of ecological systems
  • Ecosystem monitoring and restoration
  • Nature base solutions restoration measures
  • Reconnection of floodplains
