EPIK Spiders


Background
In the era of globalization, talented students with globalized minds are cultivated in many distinguished universities of home and abroad; however they are merely scattered throughout the world without given the opportunities to share their visions and knowledge. Their globalized insights and capabilities can only become a national asset when they are networked through a channel. In order to foster them into next generation leaders, a platform is needed where they are encouraged to ponder their roles in a diversified and globalized reality and to think comprehensively beyond their associated field of studies. In an effort to provide such platform, the East Asia Institute (EAI) supports the EPIK Spiders Program to play a pivotal role in providing a distinguished network and mentorship.

EPIK Spiders
EPIK Spiders was formed voluntarily in 2009 by EAI Intern graduates. It is a network of students scattered throughout distinguished universities of the world. 'EPIK (Exchange Panel for Interdisciplinary Knowledge network)' represents a comprehensive exchange of a wide range of knowledge and experience, 'Spiders' is the expansion of a social network. Through this network, students who have different majors and backgrounds can share their knowledge and ideas and develop not only their balanced thinking and comprehensive knowledge but also global mind and community spirit.

Steering Committee
The EPIK Young Leaders Conference 2014 is organized by the East Asia Institute with students from distinguished universities around the world who form the Steering Committee. The Committee determines the topic and format of the conference, and makes sure that the conference is well-promoted in the area where each member is in charge.
