On 27 May 2021 was the inaugural meeting for all the researchers. A briefing about the whole programme and ice-breaking to start the ball rolling.

It is a two-yearย research programme co-hosted byย the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS), the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam (DAV),ย and the Asian Vision Institute (AVI). The European Union funds this program.

The main objective is to promote intellectualย exchanges and collaborative research among young think tank researchers from the EU and ASEAN onย specific security, connectivity,ย and sustainable development issues. The program will be conducted online primarily (subject to the COVID-19 situation) for the selected researchers.

The program will conduct twelve online lectures for selected researchers, twelve online discussions with political decision-makers, six workshops, and two think tank conferences (the latter two being held physically or online, depending on COVID-19 developments). In addition, the program outcomesย are expected to beย 30 policy papers, 5 publications,ย and a think tank mapping that will be disseminated to relevant stakeholders through various types of media.ย 

To Jeslyn Tan and Alif Imran Hidayat, good luck in embarking on a commitment to the programme! We at MIMA will definitely give full support in your two-year journey!
