Intermediate Senior Officials Meeting (ISOM) Jakarta

The host of the ISOM, the Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education (MoRTHE) of the Republic of Indonesia invites Senior Officials from Ministries of Education in ASEM Partner Countries to the Intermediate Senior Officials Meeting in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The meeting will take place from 3-5 June 2018, with a welcome dinner on the 3rd in the evening followed by a 2 days meeting. 

Content and workshops

The ISOM integrates 2 parallel workshops on the first day, in accordance with the new meeting structure as agreed in the Chair’s Conclusions of the ASEMME6 in Seoul. During these workshops, discussions will take place on identified themes with input from experts. The workshops will be co-chaired by an Asian and a European Country.  Input for the discussions in the workshops will be provided by experts from the ASEM Education Initiatives as well as by external experts. One workshop will be organized under the 2 thematic areas ‘Quality Assurance and Recognition’ and ‘Balanced Mobility’, the other workshop will combine the themes of ‘Engaging Businesses and Industries in Education’ and ‘Lifelong Learning including TVET’.

As both workshops will take place at the same time (in the afternoon of the first meeting day), we strongly encourage partner countries to delegate at least 2 senior officials per country preferably with a background in or knowledge of the themes of the workshops in which they choose to participate (Quality Assurance & Recognition OR Lifelong Learning/TVET). The outcomes and conclusions of both workshops will be presented and discussed at the second meeting day in a plenary session which allows all participants to learn from both workshops and provide feedback.  The host and the ASEM Education Secretariat are currently preparing the content of the ISOM. We will inform you with more details about topics and speakers within the next weeks.
