PolyU has been awarded an accumulative total of nearly €2.6 million by the European Commission’s Erasmus Mundus (EM) Mobility Grant in two consecutive years to promote academic exchange. Twelve universities in Europe and South East Asia have formed a consortium and they will collaborate on the project “MULTI – Multilingualism and Multiculturalism” spearheaded by PolyU’s Faculty of Humanities (FH).

PolyU remains the first university in Hong Kong and South East Asia selected by the European Commission for the EM Mobility Grant – a flagship European Commission programme promoting international education – with the first allocation of €1.4 million in 2010 and €1.2 million this year.

The first batch of EM participants representing four nationalities from five partner universities were warmly welcomed by Executive Vice President Mr Nicholas W. Yang, Vice President (International and Executive Education) Professor Judy Tsui, Vice President (Institutional Advancement and Partnership) Professor Angelina Yuen, Dean of FH Prof. Huang Chu-ren and PolyU staff members at a Welcoming Reception held on 12 September.
