Celebrating EU-ASEAN People to People Cooperation on Higher Education


On the occasion of the 45th anniversary of the EU-ASEAN dialogue, the European Commission, in collaboration with the DAAD, the British Council, Nuffic and ENQA, invited stakeholders to reflect on higher education and research as a channel for EU-ASEAN cooperation.

Discussions focused on the successes and benefits of SHARE and ERASMUS+ programmes for researchers, higher education institutions and students in both regions. Future EU-ASEAN cooperation in higher education and research was also explored in the context of wider strategic priorities such as the EU’s Global Gateway and ASEAN’s Connectivity Master Plan 2025, covering:

  • skills
  • citizenship education and employability
  • health
  • the green transition
  • digital connectivity

The event was organised ahead of the EU-ASEAN Commemorative Summit on 14 December in Brussels and will be held in hybrid modality – Brussels (in person) and Zoom (online).
