On August 18, 2022, the 2nd Focus Group Meeting (FGM) on the “AUN/SEED-Net Transitional Plan” was held virtually. Executives of AUN members’ universities, AUN Secretariat, and AUN/SEED-Net Secretariat participated in the half-day meeting.

To continue the discussion on leveraging the longstanding network to enhance its contribution to community development in response to today’s challenge, the 2nd FGM focused on acknowledging the proposed programs and collecting opinions from the meeting participants on developing the final draft of the Transitional Plan. The plan will be put into practice following the end of AUN/SEED-Net Phase IV in March 2023.

The meeting started with two presentations from representatives of the AUN/SEED-Net Secretariat, an introduction to AUN/SEED-Net’s past achievements and current activities, and the potential implementation of AUN/SEED-Net programs Post Phase IV for AUN and its members to embrace. The highlight of the event was a session in which participants exchanged ideas and opinions.

The discussion session was fruitful, with participants actively expressing their opinions on integrating humanities and engineering education. AUN/SEED-Net is deeply grateful for the contribution of those involved in making this event so successful. Further updates will follow when the transitional plan has been formally endorsed.
