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.

In order to tackle complex challenges of the Industry 4.0, AUN-UIE focuses on collaboration in the three areas:

  • Entrepreneurship Education: Train the new generation of students to develop necessary business skills including project initiation and research development.
  • University-Industry Cooperation: Produce research to effectively accommodate the demand of the industrial sector and the current ecosystem.
