Description

MARCO POLO 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. Project actions encompassed the benchmarking of potentials and development of national and regional recommendations for international cooperation; the enhancement of strategic, human and infrastructural capacities for the management of International Relations in participating HEIs as a model for the modernisation and development of institutional frameworks for International Relations in Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia; and the development of a multi-regional network as a platform for a regular dialogue, and identification and exploitation of synergies in shaping International Relations in HEIs in Asia.
