This year marks 45 years of dialogue relations between the EU and ASEAN. The EU-ASEAN Strategic Partnership is dedicated to advancing mutual understanding, peace, prosperity, sustainable development, rules-based multilateralism, and free and fair trade. Cooperation on higher education and research, including through people-to-people connectivity, is central to the Strategic Partnership. It has resulted in multiple benefits for both regions including increasing the mobility of students and professionals alike, to facilitate the flow of ideas, cooperation and innovation between the EU and South-East Asia.

14 December sees the first-ever EU-ASEAN summit in Brussels, which is marking 45 years of cooperation between the two regions. As a ‘side-event’ during that week, INTPA and EAC are teaming up to organise an event on 12 December, which will look at EU-ASEAN cooperation in the higher education field. It will focus on both Erasmus+ international and the SHARE programme, which is providing a framework for intra-ASEAN mobility as the region moves towards a SE Asian higher education area.
