ACA members launch European higher education fairs in Asia

Starting from 2006, a European consortium consisting of the national education agencies EduFrance, DAAD, the British Council and Nuffic will organize European Higher Education Fairs (EHEFs) in the following Asian countries: Thailand, India, Malaysia, China, Vietnam, Philippines and Indonesia. The European Commission has selected this European consortium to implement the EHEF Asia project (total value: 2.4 million Euro) in the period 2006-2008. EduFrance will act as the lead agency. The project is funded from the Asia-Link programme managed by the EuropeAid Cooperation office of the European Commission.

The project consists of two key activities in each country:

  • a European Higher Education Fair. This will offer HE institutions from all European Member States a platform for promotion in Asia;
    • an Asia-Link Symposium, to promote discussion on higher education cooperation between the EU and the respective country, and to demonstrate some of the EU’s activities in this sector that benefit Asia.

The events calendar is as follows:

Thailand            November 10th-13th 2006
India                 November 24th-26th 2006
Malaysia           September 2007
China                October 2007
Vietnam             December 2007
