20th ASEF Summer University
Get on board for a funded, experience-intensive journey through China, Mongolia and the Russian Federation!
Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) process, the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) is hosting a two week educational train journey through China, Mongolia and the Russian Federation.
The 20th ASEF Summer University (ASEFSU20) is for those who are hungry to explore the role of transportation and trade in connecting Asia and Europe – in the past, present and future. Be part of the Asia-Europe team of young professionals and students who will travel together for two weeks over August and September across three countries under the theme ‘Gateways of Asia and Europe: Connectivity by Land, Sea & Air’.
The journey passes through emerging economic corridors in these three countries where you will meet and learn from local communities as well as take upon real-scenario challenges on road, rail, maritime and air transportation. ASEFSU20 brings the participants together with government officials, businesses, academia and the civil society, and offers a top-tier environment for professional and personal development.
The philosophy of ASEF Summer University programme is to act as a melting pot for young minds of Asia and Europe to collaboratively think, question and propose solutions on pressing societal issues. Since its establishment in 1998 the programme has offered an unparalleled opportunity for students and young professionals to advance their skills while fusing workshops, dialogue-lectures and collaborative exercises.
With accommodation, meals and travel subsidy provided for selected participants, you have until 11.59pm GMT Tuesday 5 April 2016 to apply for a place in this once-in-a-lifetime educational expedition!
