About EBA

EBA project is the abbreviation for among Asia and Pacific university collaboration for Evidence Based Approach (EBA).  The project offers a curriculum to foster human resources capable to identify and tackle issues based on the evidence and analysis. EBA member universities jointly design the EBA course curriculum and offer courses in their own expertise to the students of all member Universities.
EBA provides a digital communication platform where students in different countries can study together on daily basis. In cyberspace, students and faculty members of all partners interactively teach/learn/discuss each other to encourage region-wide collaborative problem-solving. The program also offers fieldworks and Internships in the region, to provide a variety of experiences in the study fields, meeting with people and society in Asia.

EBA Project is created based on EBA Consortium, supported by the “Re-Inventing Japan Project” of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) of Japan, from 2012 to 2017.
