ASK Asia: Agriculture, Skills, Knowledge
A presentation about ASK Asia project highlighted the main project activities and outputs, including survey results of EM-graduated students and employers providing work for EM graduates. This was compared and contrasted with the personal experience of EM graduates and employers present at the workshop. Problematic areas were identified and possible solutions were drafted. After the discussion, the focus of the workshop shifted to cooperation between universities, comparing the experience of EU universities to that of Asian institutions. Finally, future Erasmus activities were explored and a summary of decisions was discussed.
