CHINLONE is a three-year (2017-2020) international project in the field of Higher Education funded by the European Union in the frame of the Erasmus+ Capacity Building Key Action 2. The project is coordinated by the University of Bologna (Italy).

CHINLONE key aim is to contribute to the modernization and internationalization of Myanmar’s Higher Education System (HES), in order to facilitate the country’s transition toward a knowledge economy. To reach this goal, the project seeks to ignite a lasting impact in terms of the:

  • Modernization of Myanmar’s university management system, through the introduction of innovative and internationally recognized HE principles which can be beneficial to local academic leaders (rectors, vice-rectors, deans, head of departments, etc.);

  • Reinforced capacity to design programs, teach, and produce innovative knowledge by local faculty members, according to an approach based on students’ learning outcomes. The transition, more specifically, will be tested on three pilot curricula, carefully selected by CHINLONE’s Partner Universities located in Myanmar: Humanities & Cultural Heritage, Tourism Economics, and Agrarian Sciences.

  • Implementation and/or strengthening of International Relations Offices (IROs)in Myanmar’s Universities, as a pivotal step towards the internationalization of the local HES. This process, in fact, can be conducive to an improved positioning of Myanmar’s Universities within global networks, as well as to the exposition of students, faculty members and staff to European consolidated practices toward internationalization.

  • Future cooperation between European countries and Myanmar for the exchange of academic knowledge at any level, by framing them in a recognized and internationally regulated scheme.
