Colleagues, the highly anticipated EU ACTIVE WEEKs are back. Delighted to inform all of MYEULINK colleagues that we will be having series of scheduled Active Weeks at various academic venues such as UMS, UPM and UM starting from March 2011 stretching to April 2011. We will witness several European knowledge experts from Maastricht University, the Netherlands and The University of Nottingham, UK delivering lectures, sharing expertise and transferring their knowledge in European Union subject-related assigned disciplines. Our sincere gratitude to all six EU knowledge experts that will be visiting Malaysia to materialise the EU Active Weeks for 2011.
