AESCON is a meeting place for experts from the EU and Asia to work together on expanding sustainable connectivity opportunities and cooperation prospects between the two regions. The AESCON platform fosters an open dialogue to reinforce the connectedness of the EU-Asia scientific network.

The third online edition of the Asia-Europe Sustainable Connectivity Scientific Conference (AESCON3) was held on June 14-15, 2023, focusing again on a key priority area for the two regions: Digital Connectivity.
With an emphasis on the intersection of human-centric and resilient digital transformation, the conference reflected on the digital partnerships between the EU and Asia, as well as the fast-changing global geopolitical and geo-economic landscape.

The conference featured four panel discussions mobilising diverse Asian and European expertise over two half-days, privileging a multistakeholder approach to digital connectivity challenges and opportunities. Discussion findings will be consolidated and published as a report containing key policy recommendations.
