Get on board for a funded, experience-intensive journey through China, Mongolia and the Russian Federation!


The 20th ASEF Summer University (ASEFSU20) is for those who are hungry to explore the role of transportation and trade in connecting Asia and Europe – in the past, present and future. Be part of the Asia-Europe team of young professionals and students who will travel together for 2 weeks across 3 countries under the theme “Gateways of Asia and Europe: Connectivity by Land, Sea & Air“.


In conjunction with the 20th Anniversary of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) process, ASEFSU20 explores the concept of “Connectivity” between Asia and Europe from 3 lenses: Human Connectivity, Trade and Economic Cooperation, and Transport. ASEFSU20 leverages on the accelerating social and economic linkages between the 2 dynamic continents.


The journey passes through emerging economic corridors in these 3 countries where you will meet and learn from local communities as well as take upon real-scenario challenges on road, rail, maritime and air transportation. ASEFSU20 brings the participants together with government officials, businesses, academia and the civil society, and offers a top-tier environment for professional and personal development.
