Erasmus+ KA2 Project 'BRECIL' Launched

The project BRECIL or "Building Social Research Capacities in Higher Education Institutions in Lao PDR and Malaysia" is a multi-country Erasmus+ KA2-CBHE joint project involving higher education institutions from both the EU (University of Gothenburg, Sweden; University of Groningen, Netherlands; and University of Applied Languages, Germany) and ASEAN countries (University of Malaya, Malaysia; Universiti Utara Malaysia; National University of Laos; and Souphanouvong University, Laos) that focuses on the development of research and innovative capacities for good research governance and management through capacity building in higher education systems. The Asia-Europe Institute, University of Malaya is leading this project as a Coordinator within the Consortium from October 2017 to October 2020 .

This project aims to build research capacities in Laos universities, enhance research governance in Malaysia and Lao PDR, and innovate new research developments through ICT technologies. It will also expand the knowledge economy agenda and build a higher education area linking both Asia and Europe by supporting the assimilation of knowledge between the EU and ASEAN partners to address conditions for research, competitiveness and cooperation in higher education. These initiatives are implemented in tandem with the priorities of the ASEM Process particularly on balanced mobility and lifelong learning for research and innovation.
