The eLINK (east-west Link for Innovation, Networking and Knowledge exchange) is an EU project that aims to develop new and enhance existing co-operative teaching and research links and to establish a sustainable virtual learning platform to continue collaborative activities. eLINK will also form a collaborative framework for human resource development through the training and upgrading of the skills of the junior faculty staff, undergraduate students, postgraduate students and post-doctoral researchers in ICT, engineering, technology, business and management.
The project will allow the enhancement of knowledge and skills of teaching staff and students by introducing the latest theories, advancements and methods in ICT, Economics and Industrial Engineering. These include intelligent information systems, modelling and simulations, quality control, robotics, computational systems biology, mobile computing, environmental sciences, business studies, management science and teaching/education. This will provide a foundation for fostering new partnerships and reinforcing existing collaborations between Asian and EU universities. It will develop a virtual learning platform to share resources, exchange ideas, knowledge and views. The eLINK will mainly involve the mobility of students, researchers and academics between participating institutes for education, research and knowledge transfer.
