EM EuroAsia is an Erasmus Mundus action 2 programme financed by the European Commission. The Erasmus Mundus programme aims to enhance the quality of higher education and promote dialogue and understanding between people and cultures through mobility and academic cooperation.

EM EuroAsia is a partnership project between six universities in Europe and five universities in Southeast Asia. It is an institution based cooperation including scholarships and fellowships for mobility at all academic levels (bachelor, master, doctorate, post doc and staff).
The project EM EuroAsia was selected in the summer of 2009 and will end in the summer of 2012. Around 200 scholarship holders have been selected and all mobilities within the programme have started. There is at the moment no possibility to apply for a scholarship within EM EuroAsia.
Results from the last call for proposals - our project proposal
A proposal for a new Erasmus Mundus project under the name of EM EuroAsia 3 was submitted the 29th of April 2011 to The Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA), the agency responsible for the management of Erasmus Mundus projects. Unfortunately we were informed during the summer that our project proposal was not selected. Therefore there will be no openings for scholarships at the moment.
Reports from our scholarship holders
The majority of the scholarship holders within EM EuroAsia started their mobility in the fall 2010 and since many of them have a 10 months scholarship they are about to end their mobility. We have a mandatory evaluation form that should be filled in by our scholarship holders before they end their mobility and many of them want to share their opinions with you.
