The ASEF University Alumni Network (ASEFUAN) is an association of former participants of the Asia-Europe Foundation University, a two-week intensive scholarship programme for undergraduates at venues alternating between Asia and Europe. The ASEF University programme, which has been running since 1998, is a flagship project of the Asia-Europe Foundation,.
The alumni network was created in 2002 and launched its first website later that year. Ambassador Delfín Colomé, the Executive Director of the Asia-Europe Foundation, sent us a congratulatory message on this occasion.
ASEFUAN became an international non-profit organisation (Association Internationale sans but lucratif, AISBL) under Belgian law on 6 August 2009.
ASEFUAN organises activities to maintain and reinforce the relationships forged among participants of the ASEF University programme and undertakes projects to promote a meaningful intercultural dialogue between Asia and Europe, particularly among the younger generation.
In 2008, ASEFUAN published a commemorative brochure (PDF, 1.4MBs) to mark the 10th Anniversary of ASEF University.
