EIJS continually generates new initiatives to improve the sharing of assets among local institutions, and to increase contact with other institutions of East Asian studies in Europe for better mutual use of visiting experts to the region.

Collaboration with Routledge in London, the Instittue publishes the "EIJS Series on the Economics and Business of East Asia." EIJS has its own Working Paper series, the titles of which can be found under "Research".
