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.
