The River Danube (U.S. 'Danube River') flows eastwards across Europe for 2850 km, in Europe only the Volga exceeds it in length. Today the River flows through or forms part of the border of ten different countries.
Danube Research undertake numerous research and consultancy work with regard to navigation on the River. Our work ranges from contemporary studies of modal shift to the Danube and issues of port and shipping company privatisation, to historical work examining the Commissions of the Danube and the restoration of historic vessels on the River. See About Us for a summary of D.R. activities.
