Project budget– 4.2 million THB

Project location – Thailand, Europe

Donor- European Union (ERASMUS + CBHE)

Project duration – January 2023- December 2025 

Primary SDG Goal of focus: 4. Quality Education  

Related SDG Goals of Focus: 8. Decent Work and Economic Growth 

Description- The project aims to strengthen capacities of Higher Education Institutions in Thailand and Europe, and eventually in countries neighboring Thailand, to develop and implement curricula that train graduate students in the transdisciplinary approaches and competencies required for the future workforce to address complex global problems. This project is about capacity building for higher education. This requires capacity building at many levels including across and between higher education institutions, among teaching and support staff, in students and other learners, and in new and strengthened partnerships. Institutional and individual capacity building will facilitate the design and development of transdisciplinary course curricula, which in turn equips graduates with transdisciplinary problem-solving skills, while a community of practice will sustain and expand project gains. This is expected to attract prospective graduate students, create joint student cohorts across partnering programs, and bring continuing education opportunities for professionals. Graduates are then better equipped to deliver the need for responsive practice, which is in demand among employers. For the project, AIT partners with 2 universities from Europe and 2 from Thailand.
