Southeast Asia - Europe

Joint Funding Scheme for research and innovation

 3rd Joint Call for Proposals (Science and Technology [S&T]) in the Thematic Areas of

Integrated Water Resource Management and Nanotechnologies

Southeast Asia-Europe Joint Call Projects must comprise of at least 3 partners from 3 different countries (either 2 different Southeast Asian partners and 1 European partner or 2 different European partners and 1 Southeast Asian partner) applying for funding from funding agencies participating in the call. Funding will be provided for the duration of a maximum of three years (36 months).


The 3rd Joint Call for Proposals

Deadline: 18 October 2019 12:00 (noon) CET/ 17:00 Jakarta time

Thematic areas:

1) Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM): The protection and sustainable use of water resources plays a decisive role for the future of humankind. IWRM is a process that aims to maximize social and economic well-being while avoiding damage to vital ecosystems and creating fair conditions for the utilization of resources. In this context, ecological goals must be linked to economic and social goals. The areas under investigation are generally river basins or parts thereof, or settlement areas with bodies of water. Bi-regional research in this field is expected to exchange and transfer experiences between the two regions and to make best use of synergies.

2) Nanotechnologies: Nanoscience and nanotechnology are highly interdisciplinary and cut across industrial and commercial sectors to research and create new materials and devices with remarkable properties and functions. To name but a few, nanotechnology is being used in medicine, electronics, food, manufacturing and materials or water purification.

Countries contributing to the 3rd Call are:

Southeast Asia: Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, The Philippines, Vietnam, and Thailand

Europe: Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Germany, Switzerland, and Turkey

Application Process

Project proposals are to be submitted electronically using the PT-Outline web tool
