The Institute for the Danube Region and Central Europe (IDM) is a non-university research institution registered as an association and predominantly financed by public funds. Founded in 1953, the Vienna-based institute carries out fundamental research and mediation work with a regional focus on Central, East and South East Europe. We are a think tank and a platform for actors and stakeholders from academia, politics, economy, administration, culture, media and civil society. In addition to research, our activities focus on knowledge transfer and science communication through events, publications and educational programs.
In line with our slogan European perspectives — Regional actions. Cooperation and expertise since 1953, the experts of IDM follow a pro-European approach in order to implement regional actions. We aim to enhance cross-border cooperation, dialogue and knowledge exchange in the region and beyond. Our work is based on the principles of liberal democracy and shared values, goals and visions with our neighbours.
With this IDM Podcast Series, we expand our formats in providing our knowledge and expertise to a wider audience. You can expect high quality discussions about recent topics concerning the Danube Region, Central and South East Europe.
