Balanced Mobility

Balanced Mobility

Under the Third Priority, most initiatives are directed towards student mobility, more specifically to tackle the imbalanced mobility between Asia and Europe: the number of outgoing students in Asia is higher than the number of incoming students. There are several obstacles encountered by the students both from Asia and Europe which prevent mobility such as language barriers and funding possibilities. Additionally, Asian students often face migration restrictions and European students often have to deal with issues link to the recognition of credits (cf. priority 1). Under this priority most activities and initiatives are focusing on student mobility, some activities however are including some forms of staff mobility.

Activities that are implemented under this priority are: Lecturer Exchange in ASEM Studies’ Curriculum Module, ASEM DUO Fellowship Programme, the ASEF Classroom Network, and also ERASMUS+ Programme initiated by European Union that provides opportunities for mobility of students, researchers, academic staff and other experts. The upcoming ASEM Research Collaboration Scheme is possibly the only initiative primarily focused on staff mobility.

To increase the flow of student mobility from Europe to Asia, several events of the initiatives in this Third Priority were conducted in Asia, in particular ASEF Summer University and Asia-Europe Institute Summer Camp.
