    Korea-Japan-China CAMPUS Asia Project was launched in 2011. This is a joint program which aims to build a platform for educational collaboration, cultivating international capability of university students in Korea-Japan-China, and to foster leaders for the next-generation through joint and dual-degree programs. A pilot program was operated from 2012 to 2016 with 10 participating universities in Korea. From October 2016, the full program began in a form of Korea-Japan-China joint and dual-degree programs with 17 Korean universities. The Korean government provides financial support to the participating Korean universities to cover scholarships for government invited students and expanses for the operation of university programs. The three countries are developing a common monitoring guideline for their member universities, which will be introduced from 2018.
