Welcome to AREAS

AREAS and AREAS+ (Academic Relations between Europe and ASia) are Erasmus Mundus Action 2 projects funded by the European Commission through the Erasmus Mundus Action 2 – Strand 1 programme. The two projects are  organized by a Partnership of some the most prestigious universities in Europe and these targeted South-Eastern Asian countries: Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Mongolia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, The Philippines, Vietnam.

AREAS provided scholarships to nationals of the targeted South-Eastern Asian countries to spend a mobility period in Europe on a wide variety of academic fields at different levels of study (Undergraduate, Master, Doctorate, Post-Doctorate and Staff). AREAS has been selected for funding by the European Commission in 2011 and has provided mobility scholarships to 100 Asian individuals in the years between 2012 and 2015.

AREAS+, a new edition of AREAS, has been selected in 2013 and financed 180 mobilities in the period 2014-2017 both to Asian and European individuals, to live an invaluable experience by undertaking a study or research period respectively in Europe or in South east Asia.

AREAS+ project has successfully come to an end on July 14th 2017.
