Call for Proposals 2018

 

 

To bring the benefit of ICT to every social and geographic corner, to solve the common problems such as environmental problems, food supply, natural disasters and digital divides in the ASEAN region, all members of ASEAN IVO have the responsibility to accelerate Research and Development in the field of ICT. We consider that collaboration between institutions and between countries is one of the most important tools for this purpose, and ASEAN IVO is to launch new joint projects in spring 2018 to promote such collaboration in the ICT field.

 

In this year’s Call, the topics mainly focus on application development to provide solutions for specific regional needs or environmental or social problems. Projects would ideally have a strong outlook to conduct a demonstration by the final year of the project. Proposals from all technical fields are welcome and they will be evaluated on the potential benefit of output.

 

ASEAN IVO -- Call for Proposals 2018 is now open to all members of ASEAN IVO to make new projects in the ICT field starting from April, 2018. Please fill in the Proposal Form and submit it to the ASEAN IVO Secretariat.

I am pleased to inform you that the Work Programme 2018-2020 of Horizon 2020, the EU's Research and Innovation funding programme, was launched by the European Commission today.

Horizon 2020 is the largest multinational programme dedicated to research & innovation and it is "open to the world". This means that researchers, universities, research organisations, companies and non-governmental organisations from across the globe can apply to participate in the activities of the Work Programme carried out mainly through calls  for proposals.

The calls of the Work Programme launched today represent a major investment of €30 billion. These offer an extraordinary occasion for the scientific community and innovators in third countries to tap on the opportunities offered  by Horizon 2020 working together with counterparts from the EU and countries associated to Horizon 2020 in areas  of mutual interest.

In addition to this general opening, in this Work Programme, international cooperation in research and innovation has been strengthened through the inclusion of a list of 30 flagship initiatives with specific countries in areas of mutual benefit worth over €1billion.

For your information and further dissemination, please check our Press Release and the attached Fact Sheet prepared for the launching of the new Work Programme, a presentation highlighting International Cooperation and the list of flagships.

If you are interested to apply, consult the Horizon 2020 participant portal: http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/  and help us raising awareness of the opportunities offered by Horizon 2020 within your communities and networks.
