The Second Dialogue Event of the ACCESS Project was held in Manila on June 4th and 5th 2010.

The event was meant to encourage interregional dialogues on the specific subject of mobility from different perspectives. It was hosted by the University of the Philippines and organized by the ASEAN University Network (AUN).

Around 50 people took part in the event, including academic affairs executives and ICT experts from AUN member universities. EU HE experts and ASEF representatives were also present.

Among main conclusions, participants agreed that the development and improvement of European and ASEAN Credit Transfer Systems, and of their capacity to harmonise among themselves are fundamental to improve mobility at the ASEAN level and between the two regions. At the same time, ICTs were acknowledged as a relevant tool at the service of mobility in general and for such a reason a ground to be better explored.
