South East Asia - Lancaster Springboard for International Collaboration Event

Lancaster is leading a strategic 3 day Springboard event at Sunway University Campus, Malaysia, to bring together Lancaster and Sunway academics alongwith key South East Asian representatives from academia, business, government and civil society sectors.

Building on the established academic partnership between Lancaster University and Sunway University, this event is to bring together key invited academic research staff from both institutions along with external delegates from across the academia, business, government and civil society sectors to solidify existing links and to develop new research partnerships.

The event will focus on the theme of 'Feeding the Cities of the Future', and the potential discussion topics may include:

  • food, water and agriculture
  • sustainable design and resilient development
  • mobility, migration and health and well-being
  • business, technology and communication
  • sustainable living and environment issues.

This South East Asia Springboard is part of a wider framework of activities relating to research in developing countries and follows on from the International Forum Event in July 217:  Bridging the gap between business and academia in West Africa, an event in Ghana at the Lancaster University Ghana campus in November 2016, and the Africa - UK Forum held at Lancaster University Campus in July 2017.
