APEC Study Centres Consortium Collaboration Platform Expression of Interest

There is an increasing need for collaboration to address the Post-2020 vision.

APEC Study Centres were part of the vision set out by APEC Leaders in 1993 with the primary goal of ‘fostering regional cooperation among tertiary and research institutes to promote greater academic collaboration on key regional economic challenges.’ This goal, in 2019 is as important as it was in 1993.

We conducted a review of ASC Consortium Conference papers over the last 5 years and found zero examples of collaboration between APEC Study Centres.

At the 2019 APEC Study Centre Consortium Conference (AASC), the Australian APEC Study Centre in partnership with the Papua New Guinea APEC Study Centre called for better collaboration between the Consortium and proposed a platform which builds an online community of APEC Researchers.

The AASC propose that the 1st project on the platform is to co-ordinate research input to inform recommendations on the Post-2020 vision. ​This project will enable researchers to have impact and bring evidence and knowledge to the development of the APEC Post-2020 Vision.
