The Impact of Internationalization of Higher Education in Asia on Cooperation Among Diverse Stakeholders: International Cooperation to Promote Entrepreneurship and Innovation

In recent years, various countries and regions/territories in Asia have experienced remarkable economic growth and Asian societies have undergone a major transformation. While such significant changes are happening in Asia, cooperation beyond national borders is becoming increasingly active in the field of higher education. Particularly in the context of economic development and social change, cooperation with industry and civil society is actively promoted in the higher education field more than ever. Thus, the purpose of this presentation is to examine how internationalization of higher education in Asia influences the cooperation of diverse stakeholders across borders.

In particular, this presentation analyzes what kind of international cooperation in higher education is progressing among countries with different economic levels, such as developed countries, middle-income countries and developing countries in Asia. Then, the presentation examines how entrepreneurship and innovation can be promoted, through such international cooperation with various stakeholders, in the economic, political and social context in which each higher education institution is located. Moreover, this presentation discusses how such international efforts have great significance toward the realization of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
