FOR APAC INTERNATIONAL ASIA KNOW-HOW SUMMER SCHOOL 2024

Welcome to the FOR APAC International Asia Know-How Summer School 2024!


INTRODUCTION

The Forum Asia Pacific (FOR APAC) continues the long Summer School tradition of the former Chinese Studies Center at the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg (PLUS), which, together with the Eurasia-Pacific Uninet (EPU), has initiated its China Know-How Summer School for students from higher education institutions from Austria and other European countries in 1999.

Two years ago, the former Chinese Studies Center was transformed into the Forum Asia Pacific to include more countries from the Asia-Pacific region and strengthen scientific aspects of teaching and research projects in this field.

During the Covid-years and after the Covid period, our Summer School – formely known as the China Know-How Summer School –  could not take place for five years.  This year, we are very happy to annouce that we will hold our Summer School – now called – “FOR APAC International Asia Know-How Summer School” in Beijing, Xi’an and Shanghai, PR China. The Summer School welcomes students from our university and international students from other universities and universities of applied sciences to participate in order to promote a broader exchange between students from different parts of the world.
