EUNAP project promotes:
Research stays for PhD students
The project provides 3 grants per year for PhD students to carry out 1-2 month research stays in a partner institution different from the home university.
Potential candidates’ doctoral research has to deal with EU-Asia Pacific issues. They should be enrolled in a PhD programme in any discipline at the home university.
In December 2019, two PhD students from the University of Canterbury and one from the Wuhan University were selected.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, their research stays were postponed to the second semester of 2021.
In December 2020, two other PhD students from Wuhan University were awarded a grant. They will intend to carry out their research stays at the University of Deusto in the second semester of 2021.
Research stays for visiting scholars
Senior and post-doctoral young researchers are encouraged to carry out 3-4 week research stays in partner institutions.
The objective of this action is to promote mutual knowledge and joint research and publications.
Submission of joint panels to EUSA-AP Conferences
EUNAP project welcomes joint panel submissions from researchers and teachers in partner institutions to the annual European Union Studies Association-Asia Pacific (EUSA-AP) Conference.
Joint panels are expected to deliver joint papers too.
The 2020 EUSA AP Conference to be held at the University of Canterbury (New Zealand) was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2021 EUSA AP Conference took place in Australia, at Melbourne Institute of Technology (MIT) in 28-29 June 2021. More information on the conference is available at https://wp.me/P8ZcqX-aSI
Professors Francesco Alicino (LUM University), Xiaotong Zhang (Wuhan University) and Beatriz Pérez de las Heras (University of Deusto) submitted the joint panel “Rethinking EU-Asia Pacific relationships in the (post) Covid-19 era”.
