In addition to jointly planned core activities—such as the InterAsian Connections Conference Series and the Transregional Virtual Research Institute—InterAsia partners are developing a series of research and training activities that will be hosted by individual partner institutions. Building on the institutional strengths of the partners, these activities are designed to further the larger aims of the initiative and support innovative cross- and transregional scholarship, as well as to facilitate a range of structured interactions, engaging with particular communities around specific thematic issues.
