Our good friends, and World 100 Reputation Network members, Keio University will host the second MEXT Japan-EU Inter-University Exchange Project Liaison Meeting on “Strategic Cooperation and Support for Higher Education” on March 18, 2021.

This will be the second time this meeting will be held as a public symposium, following the first held in July 2020.

The meeting aims to share with a wider audience the realities, challenges, and know-how of managing international programs during the COVID-19 pandemic from the experiences of the three Japanese universities involved in this project:

  • Tokyo University of Foreign Studies (HIPS)
  • Toyohashi University of Technology (IMLEX)
  • Keio University (JEMARO), and their counterpart universities in the EU

It will disseminate information and share challenges with a wider audience relating to activities as part of the respective programs.

Anyone working in the international education sector or interested in the topic is welcome to join.
