New Erasmus Mundus Partnership granted in July 2012 by the European Commission.

This new project "Linking Organizations Through University Synergies III" (LOTUS III) aims to promote cooperation between the EU and the Asian countries involved in the project: the project is striving to gradually reinforce the structured long-term cooperation between all partners and to strengthen the relations that were established amongst the partners in the on-going Lotus I and Lotus II project. This should in the end result in a sustainable and strong network. The project continues to offer the perfect opportunity to boost the exchange of know-how for curriculum development, new teaching methods, international relations and university management.
