2) AC21 plans to run a panel at APAIE 2016 to be held in Melbourne, Australia

The theme of the APAIE Annual Conference and Exhibition 2016 was released: Asia Pacific – A Global Education and Research Powerhouse: New models of cooperation in research engagement and education mobility for the 2020’s.

As notified in the last issue of the Monthly Report, the AC21 is planning to submit a proposal for a group presentation at the next year's APAIE. In response to our call for participants in the AC21 panel presentation, the following member institutions have indicated their willingness to participate in the panel:

 

(in alphabetical order)

- University of Adelaide

- Technische Universität Chemnitz

- Chulalongkorn University

- University of Freiburg

- Nagoya University

 

We all are currently working on an abstract preparation/submission for the conference. If our proposal is accepted, our presentation will make AC21's activities and achievements visible and help us share knowledge and experience in a global higher education world.

 

 

3) AC21 International Forum 2016 to be held in Chemnitz, Germany

The AC21 International Forum (IF) 2016 will be hosted by the Technische Universität Chemnitz from April 30 to May 3, 2016, with the theme "Chains of Innovation for Changing Science and Society". As mentioned above in the first topic about surveys, a workshop in which our member institutions' vice-presidents for research will assemble and discuss potential research collaboration between AC21 members is also planned to be organized as part of the IF 2016.

 

 

Thank you for your continued support of AC21 and its activities.
