And the results are proof: This thematic conference was organized by the Austrian National Agency for Lifelong Learning, the Austrian National eTwinning Support Service and PA9. It took place in Vienna, Austria on 25-26 June 2014 and was focused on teacher cooperation in the Danube region. There were 53 participants from Austria, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Moldova, Slovakia, Slovenia, the Ukraine. They had the possibility to learn more about the Danube Region and its challenges in the 21st century and created future partnerships. 106
