EU-Asia Higher Education Platform workshop in China

17 December 2008

Following a number of EU-Asia higher education dialogue events this autumn, EUA recently gathered over 45 heads of doctoral schools and graduate programmes across Asia and Europe for a workshop entitled ‘Graduate/Doctoral Education in Asia and Europe’.

Held at the Delegation of the European Commission to China and Mongolia in Beijing, this workshop was the third of a series of events being organised under the European Commission funded EU-Asia Higher Education Platform (EAHEP), which EUA, DAAD and Nuffic are implementing.

The two-day event drew members of the new EUA Council on Doctoral Education and discussed such pertinent themes as structures for doctoral education and new forms of delivery, employability of PhD holders and EU-Asia collaboration in doctoral education.

A one day EU-China bi-lateral meeting, co-organised by the CEAIE (China Education Association for International Exchange), followed the event, drawing over 22 Chinese universities from the Beijing area for a discussion on EU-China bi-lateral cooperation. A report on the outcomes of this event and the two prior EAHEP events, a roundtable on governance and management in Hanoi (25-26 November) and European Higher Education Fair (EHEF) and Symposium in New Delhi (12-14 November) will be posted in the new year on the EAHEP website.
