SEA-Europe Joint Funding Scheme

In 2017 the Southeast Asia-Europe Joint Funding Scheme for Research and Innovation (JFS) was started to enhance research and innovation cooperation between the two regions. The JFS is a joint funding instrument under which national, regional and local funding agencies and ministries from SEA and Europe come together to fund bi-regional research and innovation projects.

A first Joint Call for Proposals in the thematic areas Health (Emerging Infectious Diseases/AMR) and Environment/ Climate Change (Adaptation/ Resilience of food production systems, Impacts of Climate Change on Ecosystems/ Biodiversity) was successfully implemented in 2017. In June 2018, the second joint call was launched, focusing on the thematic areas of Bioeconomy and Infectious Diseases.
