SEASIN’s core objective is to effectively support and promote social innovation as a means to achieve sustainable and inclusive socio-economic growth, social cohesion and equity in South East Asia, through intercultural, curricular and extracurricular activities.
The project aims to implement a new model for University – Socioeconomic engagement, based on a combination of curricular and extra-curricular activities; learning materials and tools; practical training; mentoring; and the development of specific support units that are dedicated to strengthening the Universities’ links with the wider social environment.
Funded by the European Commission, the project involves a consortium of 15 partners, including 11 universities, with Glasgow Caledonian University coordinating as the lead partner. The project’s activities will be based within 4 South-East Asian countries – Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia and Malaysia.
Over the course of three years, the partners will design a clear methodology and a series of curricular and extracurricular activities within the participating institutions in order to promote and support social innovation.
