AESCON is the first scientific conference on Asia-Europe Sustainable Connectivity, bringing together researchers and policy analysts working in the field of international connectivity, globalisation and their impacts on sustainable development, with a particular focus on Asia-Europe connections.

At a time of increasing connectivity, the conference aims to provide an academic forum to discuss global challenges on climate change, energy transition, transport infrastructure, trade and investment flows, people mobility, among others. AESCON aims to create an open platform for debate on sustainable connectivity, to spur future research linked to policy needs and to build a network of Asia-Europe researchers working on sustainable connectivity.

The conference builds on the work of the European Commission’s Competence Centre on Composite Indicators and Scoreboards on the ASEM Sustainable Connectivity Portal developed to support the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) policy agenda on connectivity.
