Asian Culture Transfer (ACT)


RI ACT Logo Round_1_1x.png

In a complex environment for relations between Europe and Asia, Asian Culture Transfer (ACT) aims to promote mutual respect as well as fruitful dialogue between Asian and Swiss students. The core concept of ACT is that twenty students from each of the two participating universities spend ten days in the two countries to explore and discover their economic, political, environmental and cultural characteristics and differences. The program includes sightseeing, company visits and university lectures, as well as other cultural activities typical of the country. In this way, participants not only develop a basic understanding of the structure and culture of the two countries, but can also learn from each other and form lasting friendships.
