The manifold socio-political, cultural and religious contacts between the Byzantine Empire and the lands along the Danube River provide the background for three projects, which approach these phenomena from various thematic and regional angles. In addition to the enduring significance of the Danube region as a frontier zone from the Roman to the Ottoman period, a further focus of research is on the Byzantine impact on Austria and its reception history in the middle ages and later centuries.
