The European Commission DG for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport organised a meeting to promote and explain the opportunities available under Erasmus+ to higher education stakeholders from Asia.

The invitation-only meeting, in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, invited 70 representatives from universities, higher education administrations such as Education Ministry departments and higher education associations at national and regional level.

The event focused primarily on countries from South and South-East Asia, particularly on less-developed countries – where Erasmus+ is keen to see more proposals.

The participants comprise both potential applicants and also key stakeholders from the HE sector who can spread the word about Erasmus+ opportunities.

The regional meeting was followed up by two cluster meetings with Vietnamese partners in ongoing Erasmus+ projects for (a) student and staff mobility and (b) Europe-Asia university collaborative projects (capacity-building).
