ASEM Education in a digital world: Bridging the continents - connecting the people?

Michael Jordan/DAAD

The Education Process of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) aims at fostering cooperation, mutual understanding, trust and exchange between Europe and Asia. Meanwhile, Industry 4.0 poses new chances and challenges on education, skills and employability. Therefore, the conference has focused on the priorities of the ASEM Education Process in the digital era. It has tackled questions on how ASEM countries can learn from each other in a digital world and how key instruments can be used for realizing the common vision of tangible and practical cooperation.

Conference publication

Prior to the conference, DAAD has published a call for papers addressing educational cooperation of ASEM countries in  the era of digitalisation. We have received approximately 200 abstracts from researchers and young scholars from 25 different ASEM partner countries.

The selected candidates were invited to present their results at our conference in Cologne. This has offered the conference an important thematic and academic input. The selected papers are presented in a publication alongside an introductory conference report and a short introduction to the ASEM Education Process by the ASEM Education Secretariat.

A free download of the publication is available through our publication database following this link.
