AUN University Innovation and Enterprise has the main purpose of strengthening and leveraging the innovative capacity of universities in the ASEAN region by offering them a common space for research, academic cooperation and a network-connection to higher learning institutions, government agencies, industry sectors, and business enterprises across the region. AUN-UIE also plans to equip current ASEAN students and future generations with technological competency and innovative thinking for a society that looks towards the future.
