Last month we held the final partner meeting and the final conference of the MARCO POLO project at the University of Malaya in Kuala Lumpur (MALAYSIA). MARCO POLO, funded under the Erasmus+ Programme, addressed the need of 3 South-East Asian countries – #Thailand, #Malaysia and #Vietnam – to foster interregional and international cooperation of Higher Education Institutions (#HEIs), through the build-up of capacities of these HEIs for international cooperation, thus contributing to better international networking, enhancement and better exploitation of their potentials in #Teaching, #Learning and #Research.
In the final meeting of MARCO POLO, the partners of the project presented the Best Practices Manual and the differents results obtained during the three years of the project. The final conference (also held at the UM) was attended by a large number of representatives from Asian universities and networks, as well as professors, students… Among the Keynote Speakers, we had the presence of María Castillo Fernández, ambassador of the Delegation of the EU in Malaysia (European Union in Malaysia), who talked about the cooperation between the EU and Southeast Asia.
We also share with you some photographs of an activity called “Multi-regional Education Fair”, also held during those days, where the partners of the project presented the mobility services and academic offer.
