Social Ventures on Network provides learning opportunities for East Asian students to experiment on inclusive and responsible social change through business.


Campus Asia is a trilateral education cooperation of China, Japan and South Korea. Governments of these three nations have agreed to foster trilateral cooperation and regional integration by enhancing common intimacy in the sphere of education. The three nations are investing in overcoming misconception and misunderstanding among the civil by academic cooperation and student exchanges.

Campus Asia, much like the Erasmus Programme in Europe, was launched in 2011 to encourage exchanges among university students of the three countries and to cultivate Northeast Asian specialists. Moreover, the Trilateral Education Ministers’ Meeting was established in 2016 to further strengthen and institutionalize trilateral cooperation on education.

You can find more information about Campus Asia and Trilateral Cooperations among China, Japan and South Korea in the following website:
