2 2 WELCOME NOTE PROF DR MU CHOON LEE

3 3 WELCOME NOTE PROF DR THOMAS B FISCHER

4 4 Environmental Assessment and Management (EAM) is often perceived as being taught in similar ways throughout the world. This is opposite to subjects such as planning or policy making which have more of a country specific focus. As a consequence, EAM related higher education programmes are frequently assumed to have an international, rather than national, or local, appeal. However, contrary to this perception, there is currently very little evidence that this is indeed the case. The main aim of this seminar is therefore to identify similarities and possibly also differences in EAM related higher education in S Korea, Japan and the EU. THINKING BEHIND PROJECT:

5 5 A better understanding of EAM related higher education should ultimately help: -prospective students to choose the right programme -universities / other teaching institutions to offer attractive programmes -public and private sectors to recruit suitable graduates -the economy and society at large to use resources efficiently, both, in terms of costs for higher education and in terms of delivering according to actual needs -the environment to be effectively managed and protected OVERALL RATIONALE:

6 6 -creation of a TwoEA-M network (You) -setting up of a TwoEA-M webpage (www.twoeam-eu.net) -production of a handbook (guidebook) on EAM related higher education MA programmes in the EU -testing the international usefulness of EAM related higher education teaching materials produced during the PENTA project (www.penta-eu.net); eg EA Lecturers Handbook -Three East Asian conferences (South Korea, China, Malaysia) -production of a report on regional specific EAM interests and educational requirements -A main European final TwoEA-M conference (Austria) MAIN PROJECT OUTPUTS:

7 7 -2-year European Commission funded project (December 2008-November 2010); follow-up to previous PENTA project ( ) -3 main European project partners (University of Liverpool, University of Bratislava, ANIDEA) -4 East Asian partner institutions (Yonsei University, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Nankai University, University of Technology Malaysia) -wider TwoEA-M network members PROJECT DETAILS:

8 8 -To obtain an overview of where (eg what Faculty, Department, School), how (eg modules offered; subjects taught), and in what time scale higher education EAM programmes are offered in S Korea, Japan and the EU, focusing in particular on the post- graduate (ie MA) taught level -To obtain an indication for the international usefulness of EAM related higher education teaching materials -eg EA Lecturers Handbook provided to the audience -To enhance co-operation of higher education institutions that teach EAM related (MA) programmes in S Korea, Japan and the EU OBJECTIVES OF SEMINAR:
