about the organizers:



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.

The project will directly involve the academic community, staff and students of the universities involved – it aims at having a far greater reach: positively impacting

  • the lives of individuals
  • the activities of community organisations
  • indigenous, youth and women’s groups
  • local authorities
  • non-governmental organizations
  • SMEs and many others.
