ASEAN-EU Cooperation in Science & Technology

Scientific cooperation with Southeast Asia became a higher priority on the political agenda since 2007 on the occasion of the 16th ASEAN-EU Ministerial Meeting in Nuremberg, Germany. The reasons for this were the mutual interest expressed by officials to strengthen further our co-operation and the reciprocal will to share experience on S&T issues of common concern such as health, food safety and energy supply.

ASEAN-EU Research & Innovation Collaboration

POLICY BACKGROUND

Scientific cooperation with South-East Asia has become a high priority on the political agenda since the 16th ASEAN-EU Ministerial Meeting in Nuremberg, Germany in 2007. Mutual interest in further strengthening the co-operation and the reciprocal will to share experience on S&T issues of common concern were the main driving forces. This was also supported by the strong participation of ASEAN participants in the EU Research Framework Programmes.

The objective of the Joint Funding Scheme (JFS) is to bring together Southeast Asian and European researchers and innovators to collaborate on topics of mutual interest. There is strong demand from the research and innovation community for a multilateral scheme, which would allow for societal challenges to be addressed, which is of benefit for both regions. The Joint Funding Scheme is based the lessons learned of the “Southeast Asia-Europe Pilot Call for Mobility” that was implemented by the SEA-EU-NET project in 2015, The JFS is an instrument to pool resources at a multilateral level to support collaborative research and innovation projects. At the same time, the participating countries (funding organisations) are providing funding only to their research and innovation partners. The Joint Funding Scheme (JFS) intends to develop a systematic approach to joint research and innovation activities between Southeast Asia and Europe. The JFS will pave the way for sustainable cooperation between research and innovation institutions in both regions on the basis of the following activities:

  • Implementing joint research and innovation activities
  • Enhancing bi-regional co-operation
  • Developing new partnerships and strengthen existing ones
  • Exchanging knowledge and best practice approaches

The First Call under the Joint Funding Scheme was launched in spring 2017. The results will be published in October 2017.

For further details see the official website of the JFS.
