International Exchange



International exchange promotion activities among ASEAN countries are started by the 21st century COE program in 2006 and the 8th International Conference on Sustainable Energy and Environment (SEE Conference) will be held in November organized by Graduate School of Energy and Environment (JGSEE) in Thailand. In Thailand, we have also been having the Eco-Energy and Materials Science and Engineering Symposium (EMSES) in almost every year in cooperation with Rajamangala University of Technology Thanyaburi since 2001. In 2021, the 15th EMSES has been planned in Chenrai, Thailand, however, it was postponed to 2022 because of the outbreak of COVID-19. These international activities among ASEAN region have been appreciated by many counterpart universities, research institutes in Asia, Japanese government and UNESCO. In this connection, we have cooperated with UNESCO COMPETENCE program from 2009 and established the renewable energy course in 2011. As the extension of this project, we have started the ODA-UNESCO Assist program on Energy for Sustainable Development in Asia (Vietnam in 2011, Laos in 2012, Cambodia in 2013, and Myanmar in 2014, In 2017, UNESCO selected Kyoto University as "UNESCO chair" in the field of water, energy, and disaster prevention under the collaborative activity with Graduate School of Advanced Integrated Studies in Human Survivability, WENDI ( In 2015, the Japan ASEAN Science and Technology Innovation Platform (JASTIP) has been adopted in JST SICORP and we have been promoting the international collaboration research between Japan and ASEAN.

In education activity, based on the MOU between Kyoto University and AUN which was initiated IAE activities, the AUN ‒ KU Student Mobility Program towards Human Security Development(HSD) has been selected to accelerate internationalization of university in 2012. So far many sending/invitation programs, collaboration researches have been promoted under the support of JST, JSPS, Kyoto University.


The Toyota Foundation: Initiative Program for Fiscal 2022

Targeted at bio-circular green economy and sustainable development, this ASEAN-Japan team aims to co-create an original training system of "Science, Technology & Innovation (STI) Coordination" between government, academic, private sectors and local community. Currently, connections between different sectors are limited because of lacking well-trained coordinators and their training system. Therefore, it is necessary to develop the training system to cultivate more coordinators with professional knowledge and communication skills, and to facilitate dialogue among different stakeholders. In this project, members from different sectors in Cambodia, Thailand, and Japan will deepen their common understanding of good practices and problems in STI through interactive site visits, internships, and workshops.
