Southeast Asia and Europe have established a strong partnership in S&T for years. The FP7 funded SEA-EU-NET project has been working since 2008 to expand scientific collaboration between Europe and Southeast Asia (SEA) in a more strategic and coherent manner. The project was funded in two phases (2008-2012 and 2012 to 2017) and came to an end in April 2017. This report summarises the main activities and results of the projects, namely:


  • Continuing and intensifying the bi-regional dialogue between EU and ASEAN S&T policy makers on Senior Officials level as well as creating an annual exchange forum for researchers, innovation stakeholders, policy makers and private business to improve EU-SEA cooperation and exchange through the series of the ASEAN-EU Science, Technology and Innovation Days
  • Jointly tackling societal challenges in the fields of Health, Food Security and Safety as well as Water Management with relevance to both regions by organising events and workshops, providing fellowships for young researchers and conducting studies on future collaboration potentials
  • Informing the Southeast Asian research community on the Horizon 2020 programme as well as increasing the level of Southeast Asian participation in Horizon 2020
  • Completing detailed analytical work on the current state of EU-SEA S&T relations and innovation potentials and developing recommendations on how to strengthen the relationship and feeding these into the official dialogue process

This project has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological
development and demonstration under grant agreement no 311784.
