  • 2018/09/15


The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) announces a call for papers for the conference ‘ASEM Education in a digital world: bridging the continents - connecting the people?’ in Cologne, Germany, 20th – 21st November 2018.

The Asia Europe Meeting (ASEM) compiles 51 different countries and societies which are all committed to strengthening ties and deepening cooperation between Asia and Europe. The ASEM Education Process constitutes one pillar under this informal intergovernmental forum for dialogue and cooperation. On a regular basis, conferences on specific educational issues are held within the ASEM framework.
During their last conference, ASEM Ministers of Education adopted the Seoul Declaration which has declared people-to-people connectivity as a key element of cooperation for the next decade. In addition, ASEM societies are moving forward as Industry 4.0 implies new chances and challenges for education, skills and employability.

Description of the conference:
The conference concentrates on ASEM Education priorities in the digital era. It tackles questions on how ASEM countries can learn from one another and how key instruments can be used for realizing the common vision of tangible and practical cooperation in a digital world.
Therefore, we invite proposals for papers pertaining the following topics:
1) Boosting exchange: balancing mobility between Asia and Europe through digital formats?
2) ASEM’s diversity: fostering intercultural connectivity and understanding in a digital way
3) Educational cooperation through virtual learning and blended formats: how to assure its quality?
4) Industry 4.0: new challenges for skills and competences of young students and graduates

Application deadline is September 15, 2018.
