Open Call for ARC5 Students’ Forum on Employability Skills

Project Updates


2 Dec 2015

How can governments cooperate to tackle the challenge of rising youth unemployment in Asia and Europe? What can universities do to better prepare young people for the labour market? How can universities and businesses work together to prepare the new generation for their careers? The 5th ASEM Rectors’ Conference and Students’ Forum (ARC5) on “Employability: Asia and Europe Prepare the New Generation” will address these questions. It will take place between 4-8 April 2016 at Charles University in Prague, the Czech Republic.

ASEF warmly invites students of all academic disciplines to contribute to and develop answers to fill the skills gap between education and job requirements. Apply and join your peers from 51 ASEM countries to represent and communicate the students’ voice in the ASEM Education Process.

A stimulating and dynamic programme awaits you: interact with university rectors, business leaders and policy-makers and channel your perspectives directly to the ASEM Ministers for Education. Travel subsidies, accommodation and meals are provided for the participants.

Interested? Take a look at the results and impact of the previous Rectors’ Conference and Students’ Forum on 23-27 March 2015 in Hangzhou, China.

Make use of this unique opportunity and have a say in the future of youth employment in Asia and Europe!
