2. Economic and Social Sciences

I. Ongoing Collaboration:  

1. Research and training in tourism, involves Austria, Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia.

Training courses on tourism are being held at the moment.

Public administration - Austria has only initiated Public Administration in a collaboration with Indonesia. PSU is interested in this topic and would like to join in the programme.

No collaborative research is being implemented at the present time.  

2. Short-term courses

  1. Area Study: Asian Studies Programme are being carried out in Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines for Austrian students.
  2. European summer course, cooperation between University of Utrecht and University of Indonesia. All the participants would like to join in this programme and suggest enlarging it by inviting many universities in Europe to join.
  3. Workshop on Intercultural management and international business - involves Austria, Thailand, Vietnam (UInn, WU, NEU, PSU) and is a 3-week course (60 hours) for Austrian and Asian students.

3. Joint Degree Programme –same as reported in 7 th Plenary Meeting report 

Joint degree programmes:  

  1. Groningen and ITB:
    MS Biomedical Engineering
    MS Chemical Engineering
    MS Actuarial Science  
  2. Groningen and Gadjah Mada University:
    MS Biomedical Engineering
    MS International Management
    MS Public Health
    MS Regional and Local Planning  

II Future Collaboration

  1. Bilateral programmes should be expanded to become multilateral programmes with many universities involved and having more students from different universities to participate in each programme. More discussions are required to make concrete suggestions.
     
  2. Research Programme: This programme is very important and very useful especially to get more collaboration between member universities. The result from research will be new knowledge for academic institutes and also the supporting knowledge for creating or developing new curriculum programmes. Furthermore it may be useful for some countries for their social development projects. Some proposed research topics are:  
    1. National Resource Management by KU and NEU and HCM
    2. Islamic Study, Peace Study and Conflict Management by PSU with Austrian support
    3. Social problems, Current Sociological Study of UT
    4. Environmental Economy by MahU, PSU and NEU
    5. E-tourism with GIS and E-commerce by Austria, PSU. MU should be invited to join.
    6. Socio-Cultural and Economic Impacts, Health Problem and Technology Transfer in the Tsunami Area (KU, PSU, Austria)

3. Health, Pharmacy and Medicine

  1. Postgraduate Students Education Exchange
  2. Exchange of Professors
  3. Research Projects
  4. Seminars/Workshop
    • Avian Influenza
    • Nanoparticles for Drug/Cosmetics
    • Animal-Human Relationship
    • Phytotherapy

The decision was made to use ASEA UNINET's Notice Board as a forum for Eurasia Pacific and Asea-Uninet for posting results.

4. Humanities, Culture and Music

At the present time Austrian professors visit Thailand and Vietnam to award a small number of scholarships. This means that only single students benefit from the scholarship. It is suggested that Austrian professors come to Vietnam to hold master classes thus producing a greater benefit for a wider number of students.

The Ministry of Education in Thailand and Ministry of Education in Vietnam have experienced language problems when exchanges take place. English is the main language for teaching.

Humanities and social exchange – conductors and musicians.
