We are offering an exchange of experts or the opportunity of a stay at the Ministry of the Environment, Climate Protection and the Energy Sector to employees of the various ministries and communal/regional authorities of the countries along the Danube. 

The programmes are tailored to the professional interests of each participant, and include expert discussions and tours relating to relevant topics such as waste water disposal, renewable energy and the energy-efficiency of systems, as well as the opportunity to work in the Ministry’s various departments. 

In this way, the exchange of experts creates a strong foundation for future cooperation and common projects. The experiences thus gained can also be helpful for future work in the countries along the Danube. A good command of the German Language is an important requirement for a stay at our Ministry.
