Operated by the ICPDR in cooperation with 5 partners and funded by the EU, We Pass – or to give its full title, “Study on environmental and ecological thematics in the framework of MRS and policy coordination with DG NEAR/ENV: Support for the implementation of the Feasibility Study analysing options for characteristic Danube fish migration at Iron Gate I & II” – has been active since 2019.
The project's aims were largely to focus on the preservation and reestablishment of endangered fish species' migration routes in the Danube River, its tributaries, and specifically at the Iron Gates dams located between Romania and Serbia.

We Pass appreciates the importance of the Danube region’s broader interlinked environmental well-being, and sees the survival of native Danube river fish species such as sturgeon, shads, barbel, nase, and others as both indicators of the region’s environmental health and as symbolic of the Danube region’s common identity.
With that in mind, the We Pass Final Conference isn't only going to hear reports from the project's various Activity Leaders on Data Analysis, Fish Monitoring, Communications, 3D Modelling, and more, but it's also going to hear from some related and similar projects focusing on similar issues.
Spread across two morning sessions, this public Final Conference will report on everything that's happened during We Pass, and pave the way forward for We Pass 2, the followup project due to kick off in the coming period.

We Pass was an initiative aiming to facilitate fish migration in the Danube River Basin, set up by the ICPDR, Jaroslav Černi Institute, DDNI, CDM SMITH, OAK Consultants, and the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research. The focus was on the preservation and reestablishment of endangered fish species migration routes in the Danube River, its tributaries, and specifically at the Iron Gates.
On Thursday 12 December 2019, We Pass – an EU-funded project with the ICPDR aiming to facilitate fish migration and habitat conservation in the Danube River Basin – held its first stakeholder workshop on the banks of the Danube River in Vienna, Austria.
On Tuesday 9 April 2019, the EU project We Pass – facilitating fish migration and conservation at the Iron Gates – was kicked-off in the Hotel Aquastar, Kladovo (Serbia).
