Advancing Strategic Management, Leadership and Fundraising in Higher Education in Asia (ASTRA) co-funded by the Eramus+ Programme of the European Union

ASTRA is to support the operation of Higher Education Institutions in Laos and Thailand, by increasing their staff’s capacity for accessing financial resources through the exploitation of relevant donour-funded Research and Development Programmes in the areas of ICT and Social Sciences

In a 3-year framework, the Faculty of Hospitality and Tourism (FHT) plays a crucial role as a representative of Prince of Songkla University (PSU) to execute the project with 8 institutions from 5 different countries in Europe and Asia. Four new R&D centers will be set up in the four partner institutions (2 in Laos and 2 in Thailand). Furthermore, their operation will be managed from the 60 academic staff from both countries that are going to be trained during the capacity building programme together with more than 500 academic & professional staff directly reached through dissemination & exploitation activities
