Science Diplomacy and its Opportunities in Southeast Asia

5 Apr 2021

Universities and educational institutions, both private and public, have begun to modify their course offerings and shift their research efforts to reflect the advent of emerging technologies. SMU has rebranded an entire school – now the School of Computing and Information Systems – to introduce a greater focus on computer science and emerging technologies. Strong and relevant educational opportunities are critical for keeping pace with the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and partnerships between states and universities in the region allow for more people to learn about emerging technologies and may even attract professors, researchers, and students from around the world. ASEAN states should continue to work with educational institutions to increase scope and encourage more students to start learning about emerging technologies from a younger age.
