SUSTAIN EU-ASEAN supporting exchange and coordination among research projects in ASEAN
On 23 January 2014, SUSTAIN EU-ASEAN has brought together representatives from around 15 environment research projects in a first clustering meeting to facilitate their networking and coordination. The projects have been selected among a range of multilateral and bilateral ASEAN-EU research consortia in climate action, raw materials and resource efficiency.
With this step, SUSTAIN moves from its phase of initial project identification to its core tasks of:
- facilitating networking between research projects
- supporting projects in identifying synergies
- taking up relevant project results and carry them to policy stakeholders.
The meeting took place back-to-back to the ASEAN-EU STI Days 2014 (21-23 January) in Bangkok.
