The “Southeast Asia-Europe Pilot Joint Call for Mobility” is now officially closed. As a result of the call, 19 proposals from a broad range of international consortia were received. Applicants for the call are: Austria, Belgium, Cambodia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Myanmar, Poland, Thailand, The Netherlands, and The Philippines. In total, 97 partners (53 European partners and 44 Southeast Asian) representing a diverse range of interests and disciplines responded to the call; with 9 projects in the topical area of environment, 9 in food/agriculture and 1 in health received. In terms of region, for Europe the largest number of applications stem from Germany; whereas the largest number for Southeast Asia comes from Thailand. These two countries are in turn followed by France and Cambodia, respectively.

Projects are currently undergoing evaluation and are estimated to start 1 January 2016 and run for a period of one year.

The “Pilot Joint Call for Mobility” represents the first time European and Southeast Asian countries have pooled resources to jointly fund research projects. This experience is key to the further development of joint multilateral European - Southeast Asian Research Funding Schemes.

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