Institute for Euro-Asian Studies
The Institute for Eurasian Studies (ZEI) was established as a platform for the creation and development of all forms of cooperation between the Faculty of Economics and Business and institutions from Euro-Asian countries. ZEI serves as a starting point for the establishment and support of international mobility of students and teaching staff from Europe and Asia and a gathering of interested lecturers and associates of the Faculty as well as partner institutions from Croatia, Europe and Asia.
Cooperation between the Faculty of Economics and Business and institutions from Euro-Asian countries will be based on an interdisciplinary approach to research with the aim of creating an open platform for research and teaching cooperation and collaboration with a view of establishing joint academic degree-earning programs as well as life-long upskilling certificate-earning programs. ZEI would thus enable the further strengthening of business relations cooperation and communication between Croatian researchers and their European and Asian counterparts. Major international projects such as the 17 + 1 Initiative (with a focus on Central and Eastern European countries) as part of the Belt and Road Initiative may also benefit from stronger intra- and inter-regional co-operation.
Established in 2020, ZEI is an independent institute based at the Faculty of Economics and Business University of Zagreb Croatia.
