Now many societies in each country or regional communities are in high demanded for creating a sustainable society with COVID-19. Today's world after globalization, as COVID-19 took every country by surprise, challenges the creativity of mankind to re-assemble transdisciplinary knowledge and rethink the existence of human society.

The University of Tsukuba and National Cheng Kung University have established a consortium with Southeast Asian institutions on four themes—higher education, aging care and infectious diseases, design and communication, and technology and policy—to benefit emerging society through raising new questions and transforming existing knowledge.
In the main session, we will introduce institutions and projects in this consortium. Subsequently, four sub-sessions will be held to discuss research and education in progress.
