The government of Baden-Württemberg will host and set up the Danube Strategy Point (DSP) in its Representation to the European Union in the European quarter in Brussels. The DSP is a new element in the governance of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR).
The overall objective for establishing the DSP is to improve the implementation process of the EUSDR and to help to improve its governance by enhancing and strengthening the cooperation and interaction and by creating synergies between the responsible stakeholders and organisations in the Danube Region.
With establishing the DSP, the Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy in the European Commission and the National Coordinators of the EUSDR are implementing a key point of the Report from the European Commission to the European Parliament, the Council, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions of 20 May 2014 concerning the governance of macro-regional strategies.
After a pilot-phase of two years, the DSP will be subject to an evaluation of its performance and efficiency.
The DSP will also administer funds originating from the EU institutions in the framework of Technical Assistance for the Priority Areas in the EUSDR for the years 2015-2016.
The government of Baden-Württemberg will therefore recruit six fulltime staff members for the DSP:
- 1 Head of DSP
- 1 Deputy Head of DSP / Senior Officer
- 1 Senior officer
- 1 Financial Officer
- 1 Administration Officer
- 1 Secretary / Team Assistant
