Intensive Program
Responsible Use of Soil and Land and Regional Development

The Intensive Program “Responsible Use of Soil and Land and Regional Development” (IPSOIL ) is a program of study which brings together from 2004 to 2007 students and staff from universities in different participating Danubian countries.

The goal of this IP is to work out a common vision for measures against uncontrolled sealing and damage of soil and land, intending a balanced production and also developing concrete measures for integrated land utilisation to initiate a ´learning region´.

The aims of this project are to co-operate in the development of measures against uncontrolled sealing and damage of soil and land. We want to work on concepts for solving these complex problems in cooperation with graduate students and Ph.D. students from six Danubian countries (DE, AT, HU, SK, BG, SI) and also representatives of science and political administration.

Within the first phase of the Intensive Program from 2004 to 2005 we were analysing the theoretical and practical examples from the five research clusters and were integrating the topics systemically within a future search workshop. We were also working on various models about soil and land use to understand the problems.

The second phase from 2005 to 2006 is dealing with the conceptualization of a program about soil and land use towards a thematic strategy for soil protection and sustainable land use.

Within the third phase of this IP from 2006 to 2007 we will carry out a common vision for achieving a concept for a ´learning region´ to obtain goals of a resource saving regional development in the Danube space…More
