DUO-Korea 2011 is open for applications from April 18 until May 19, 2011 Korea local time.The DUO-Korea programme is sponsored by the Korean Ministry of Education, Science and Technology with the aim to promote exchanges of people between Korean and European ASEM member nationals on a balanced and permanent basis.
The programme was established in 2001 and has supported 920 professors, students and teachers over the past 9 years. However, the programme will only concentrate on students to accommodate their ever increasing demand with limited resources, facing the steep Euro exchange rate.
The Asia-Europe Vision Group in 1999 recommended the establishment of a fellowship programme within the ASEM framework. The creation of n "ASEM Scholarship Programme" was suggested, underscoring that educational exchanges between Asia and Europe are key to establishing deeper understanding between the peoples of the two continents.
