The first in a series of SHARE’s policy dialogues, 'Enhancing Connectivity and Comparability in ASEAN Higher Education' event will bring together senior national ASEAN policymakers in higher education, leading representatives of regional organisations, relevant donor agencies, and distinguished academics from universities across the ASEAN region.

The purpose of this series of events is to position SHARE well within the existing landscape as regards existing Quality Assurance, Qualification Frameworks and Credit Transfer System initiatives, to facilitate exchange of information from Asia and Europe, and explore synergies that will enhance connectivity and comparability in ASEAN Higher Education.

SHARE is a 10M Euro EU Grant funded project with an overarching objective to strengthen regional cooperation, enhance the quality, competitiveness and internationalisation of ASEAN higher education institutions and students, contributing to an ASEAN Community beyond 2015. The main aim is to enhance cooperation between the EU and the ASEAN Economic Community and to create lasting benefits from the harmonisation of higher education across ASEAN.

A consortium led by British Council, comprising the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), EP-Nuffic, Campus France, the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA) and the European University Association (EUA) will be working between 2015 and the end of 2018 with ASEAN counterparts to implement SHARE.
