Since January 2010, MYEULINK has been raising awareness and understanding of the EU and its key policies among universities, government officials, decision-makers, the private sector, media, NGOs, and other interest groups in Malaysia. The project encourages cooperation, embedding of EU-centric modules in curricula, and policy dialogue in higher education and helps inform decision makers on a range of EU macro policy initiatives.
