On 25 September 2018 PIE and DHENIM organised the Seminar on Student Recruitment and Capacity Development in South and Southeast Asia. South and Southeast Asia (S&SEA) is one of the world’s most dynamic and diverse areas. They are the home to almost a third of the world’s population and some of the world’s fastest-growing economies. With numerous ongoing research and capacity development projects and over 5000 registered students in 2018, Dutch education institutes have strong relations with many countries in this region. This seminar aims to connect staff of Dutch Higher Education Institutes in the field of student recruitment and capacity development in South and Southeast Asia.
