As the main facilitator, the National University of Laos (NUOL) arranged the first periodic meeting on November 18, 2021, through an online platform to provide an update on the implementation of the consortium with CEP-SME-AISA partners, including the University of Kitakyushu (UKK), King Mongkut’s University of Technology North Bangkok (KMUTNB), King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT), and Rajamangala University of Technology Rattanakosin (RMUTR).
The meeting resulted in several fruitful discussions. The program and future strategic plans for implementing activities, a backup plan for coping with the COVID-19 situation, and financial management were discussed among the various partners.
The JICA Project for AUN/SEED-Net is grateful to all partners for their considerable efforts in implementing this collaboration. The university-industry network partnership is certain to bring fruitful outputs as our joint endeavors continue.
