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.

European Commission: Research and Innovation

Horizon 2020, the EU's current framework programme for research and innovation runs from 2014 to 2020 with a budget of nearly EUR 80 billion. Horizon 2020 is fully open to international cooperation. The biggest EU research and innovation programme ever, Horizon 2020 is based on 3 pillars: Excellent Science, Industrial Leadership and Societal Challenges.

Erasmus +

Erasmus+ is the EU's programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget of €14.7 billion will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, and gain experience abroad.

Set to last until 2020, Erasmus+ doesn't just have opportunities for students. Merging seven prior programmes, it has opportunities for a wide variety of individuals and organisations.

Detailed information on these opportunities, including eligibility criteria, is available in the Erasmus+ Programme Guide. An indicative funding guide for some centralised opportunities is also available.

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 Southeast Asia-Europe Joint Funding Scheme for Research and Innovation (JFS) is an instrument for the funding of bi-regional research and innovation projects. The funding for the projects is provided by funding agencies or ministries at national, regional or local level from Southeast Asia and Europe. Each country funds "their own researchers" according to their own rules and in principle there is "no money crossing borders".

On a regular basis Joint Calls for Proposals are being launched in changing thematic areas which are of interest to the participating funders. In 2017 a first joint call in the thematic areas Health (Emerging Infectious Diseases/AMR) and Environment/Climate Change (Adaptation/Resilience of food production systems, Impacts of Climate Change on Ecosystems/Biodiversity) was successfully implemented.

A typical project funded under the JFS would last for 3 years and usually costs such as personnel, (small) equipment, consumables, travel and workshops are eligible. Yet, this can vary from funder to funder since the national rules apply.

The central management of the JFS is operated by the European Commission's Service Facility in Support of the Strategic Development of International Cooperation in Research and Innovation.

1st Joint Call 2017 (Closed)

2nd Joint Calls 2018 in the thematic areas Bioeconomy and Infectious Diseases (Closed)

OPEN +++ 3rd Joint Call for Proposals (Science and Technology [S&T]) in the Thematic Areas of Integrated Water Resource Management and Nanotechnologies (Deadline 18 October 2019)

OPEN +++ 4th Joint Call for Proposals (Innovation) in the Thematic Areas of Infectious Diseases (including Antimicrobial Resistance) and Smart Cities (Deadline 18 November 2019)

 

 

The collaborative project 'Climatic Water Stress – Southeast Asia' (CWSSEA) was selected for funding under the 1st JFS Call. Project participant Dr Pantana of Chulalongkorn University in Thailand shares with us the details of the collaboration.

Interview with Dr Pantana Tor-ngern (185.25 KB)

 

About the Project

The CWSSEA (Climatic Water Stress – Southeast Asia) project will study the functioning of tropical forests, particularly secondary forests in Thailand, and assess how they will respond to climatic water stress and the potential impacts of future climate scenarios in these ecosystems.

This information will then assist in creating model predictions on the long-term scenarios of climate change impacts on forest ecosystem services, and influence future global policies to combat climate change.

The Science

The researchers will measure canopy transpiration, which is frequently used to estimate canopy stomatal conductance; a central variable in modeling the uptake of carbon by forests. Measurements will be made in both mature and secondary forests, which in turn will allow for the investigation of species-specific responses to water stress by assessing tree hydraulics and drought vulnerability of the dominant species in each forest type.

The team will also explore the degree of soil water partitioning among species within each forest to provide a more mechanistic understanding of how individual trees are able to overcome drought stress.

Taken together, this will be one of the first studies to quantify canopy transpiration, tree hydraulics and drought vulnerability as well as the mechanisms dominant tree species in both mature and secondary tropical forests use to overcome drought stress, which will provide the necessary information to more accurately predict how climate change will affect the carbon and water cycle in tropical forests.
