The ASEAN-European Academic University Network (ASEA UniNet) originally founded in Austria, has now spread all over Europe. Its aim is to initiate and promote research cooperation projects between European and South East Asian universities.

ASEA-UNINET Austria supports the exchange of knowledge between contracting partners that signed the “Mutual Agreement“ of ASEA-UNINET. The network’s main activity consists in organising and financing the exchange of scientists and/or postgraduates and the resulting transfer of knowledge as proposed in co-operation projects to be financed. Its activities are based on a “Training and Mobility“ concept aimed at promoting an exchange between Europe and South East Asia and also at improving collaboration between South East Asian universities, creating opportunities for generating  programmes with other European universities

Network aims:

  • Initiation and support of research projects
  • Acceleration and support of scientist, university teacher and student exchanges
  • Improvement of the mutual recognition of degrees
  • Support for the development of joint study plans with double degrees

Forms of cooperation between institutions:

  • Short visit for the purpose of preparing a cooperation
  • Education and training in a specific area of work or with regard to certain verification procedures and methods
  • Block courses (approx. one month) in the sense of short-term visiting professorships
  • Jointly planned research programs at various partner universities
  • Educational activities: training courses, workshops and field trips

ASEA-UNINET grants the following types of financial assistance in the scope of the selected co-operation projects:

  • Stays of visiting researchers and doctoral students from South East Asia
  • Visits of Austrian scientists of the University of Vienna to South East Asia (as a rule, only travel expenses will be paid; the Asian partner universities ought to be able to offer the costs of the stay for at least one week)

The amount of financial assistance granted will be determined according to availability of funds and may therefore change from one year to another.
