Mobility track

Danube AgriFood students can choose if they want to spend their second semester at SZIU/Hungary or BUASVMT/Romania and their third semester either at UNIZG/Croatia or UNS/Serbia. The first semster will be at BOKU/Austria. Furthermore, students have the possibility to gain professional experience by doing an internship in their field of interest during their study programme and to improve their scientific work by preparing themselves with the lecture "Presenting at a Scientific Conference" and by participating at the CASEE summer school.


Each student has to study at at least 3 different universities.

In detail, this means that the students have to complete the following schedule:

a) Semester 1 at BOKU
b) Semester 2 at SZIU or BUASVMT
c) the compulsory Summer or Winter School, the internship and lecture on preparing a scientific conference
d) Semester 3 at UNIZG or UNS
e) Semester 4: master’s thesis and graduation at one of the 5 degree-awarding partner universities (BOKU, SZIU, BUASVMT, UNIZG, UNS) (with co-supervision of master’s thesis by another of the 5 degree-awarding partner universities)

Each degree-awarding partner has to offer courses of at least 30 ECTS credits per semester for students to choose.

Chair: Prof. Dr hab. Maria Parlinska, WULS-SGGW, Poland

Co-Chair: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Michal Lostak, CULS, Czech Republic

The Session was divided into 2 parts: on Monday 15 May we had 4 presentations and on Tuesday 16th May there were 3 presentations. Most of presentations were examples of scientific work. Some were delivered by young scientific staff and some by PhD candidates. Pia Euteneuer from BOKU Vienna in cooperation with scientists from CULS in Prague, UNS Novi Sad and Experimental Farm Network gave a lot of information about Earthworm abundance under four different cover crops. Andrea Raluca Bujdai presented the results regarding apples and strawberry behavior in an organic orchard in Arad County in Romania. That was interesting information from practice. We have been also informed about challenges, good and bed sides of such kind production. The 3rd presentation was given by Florina Galea from University if Iasi Romania was about family vegetable gardens in urban and peri-urban areas in the allotment system.This topic is now very much on top. Daria Lemic from University of Zagreb Croatia Second day has presented “Innovative and modern monitoring as essential tool for effective pest control. During the second day there were s presentations of scientific work.Marko Vincekovic from University of Zagreb Croatia showed the results of studies of simultaneous encapsulation of chemical and biological active agents. The next two presentations held by scientists Hana Greifova and Eva Tvrda from Slovak Agricultural University in Nitra about experiments in vitro with spermatozoa of bulls and rabbit. All presented scientific work was on a high level and each presentation was followed by productive and interesting discussion.
