European Union Centre at NSYSU

European Union Centre at NSYSU



I.            Background Information

The European Union Centre at National Sun Yat-sen University was founded in July, 2009. It is one of the seven universities consortiums in Taiwan established by the European Commission. It attaches to the Office of the International Affairs of NSYSU, with professional staff running the centre. Acting as the leader in southern Taiwan, the EU Centre at NSYSU holds activities which enhance the understanding of the European Union in five aspects, such as education, academics, business, art and culture, and community service. All the resources are shared with other universities and local schools in southern Taiwan. The Centre plays an important role in spreading information of the European Union.

II.          Achievements

During the past three years from 2012 to 2014, the EU Centre at NSYSU had held 26 large-scale activities, with other 113 institutions participating. Those activities benefited 23,414 global citizens, including students from local elementary schools, junior and high schools, and colleges as well as professions from academic, governmental and commercial fields. For example, we have been running the “Taiwan-Europe Cultural Exchange and Community Service Scholarship Program” for more than three years. The Center selects and trains Taiwanese students and European students from NSYSU in order for them to carry out featured cultural courses in various elementary and secondary schools in Kaohsiung. This program provides an opportunity for Taiwanese and European students of NSYSU students to have face-to-face interaction with local school students. The interaction will first broaden the international outlook of Taiwanese school children. Secondly, NSYSU students can develop international project planning skills. Thirdly, it is a great chance for the European students to experience and gain a deep knowledge of the nature of the educational environment in Taiwan. Intangible benefits also include the growth of international friendship between all parties.

III.       Funding

NSYSU has been sponsoring and supporting a variety of activities which enhance the understanding of the European Union from 2009 to 2015. In addition, the project is funded by the European Union as well. All the funding is used in various activities or purchase of books in order to promote the European Union. Over the past six years, due to the constant activities held by the EU Centre at NSYSU, the citizens in the southern Taiwan gradually get acquainted with the European Union. NSYSU has become the platform for the public to enhance the understanding of the European Union and the top choice to cooperate with in terms of EU-related activities.
