UAS in China, Opportunities and Challenges

Since the beginning of the year of the Monkey, we have been busy assisting several Swiss Universities of Applied Sciences (UAS) in identifying their opportunities with Chinese counterparts, especially in interdisciplinary education. We are trying to provide tailored solutions for each stakeholder, helping them understand the massive changes in the position of UAS in higher education in China and what are the challenges when it comes to collaboration with Chinese partners. If you missed our previous observation, please click on the map above to give you an overview of we have achieved so far.

Meanwhile, we are working on a series of events focusing on two topics of the year, Fintech and Medtech. Please stay tuned for the outputs, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Asia is a big and culturally diverse region, far from our Swiss stakeholders. China, Japan and South Korea, are very distinct, and it is very important to have local professional expertise. During 2015, we have realized that sharing our resources, exchanging information among the three countries to create an intense partnership within north-east Asia S&T network is a necessity in order to offer a better service to our stakeholders in Switzerland as the majority of them have partnered more than one of us.
