Thematic Areas

1) Bioeconomy:

The bioeconomy comprises those parts of the economy that use renewable biological resources from land and sea – such as crops, forests, fish, animals and micro-organisms – to produce food, materials and energy.

Bioeconomy is a top-priority on the research agendas of the EU and its MS/AC and the ASEAN countries (e.g. see Europe's Bioeconomy Strategy and cross-cutting topic in APASTI in Sub-Committee on Biotechnology (SCB), Sub-Committee on Food Science and Technology (SCFST) and Sub-Committee on Marine Science and Technology (SCMSAT), Sub-Committee on Materials Science and Technology (SCMST) or also Sub-Committee on Sustainable Energy Research (SCSER).

2) Infectious Diseases

Research on Infectious Diseases has a long history in Southeast Asia-Europe cooperation as the pose a threat to both regions and there are strong research capacities on both sides. The topic was also part of the 1st Joint Call for Proposals under this funding scheme.

Evaluation Process

The evaluation process includes the following steps.

  1. Eligibility check

The Joint Call Secretariat (JCS) will check all pre-proposals to ensure that they meet the formal criteria of the call (date of submission, number and country distribution of participating research partners, inclusion of all necessary information in English and length). The JCS will forward the proposals to the National Contact Points who will perform a check for compliance to country/regional rules (as described in respective "National Guidelines for applicants”).

Please note that proposals not meeting the formal criteria or the national/regional eligibility criteria and requirements may be declined without further review.

  1. Peer review

Independent scientific experts in the relevant thematic research fields will carry out the anonymous peer review of the eligible project proposals according to evaluation criteria set up by the funding parties. Each proposal will be evaluated by three evaluators (at least one Southeast Asian and one European peer reviewer). The peer reviewers will be nominated by the Southeast Asian and European National Contact Points in cooperation with the funding parties.

The evaluation is done using the following evaluation criteria:

  1. Scientific/technological excellence and innovativeness of the project idea (scoring from 0 to 10)
    • Sound concept, quality of objectives
    • Innovativeness of the project idea: capacity of a project to contribute to the development of a new technology, service or product
    • Quality and effectiveness of the methodology and associated work plan
    • Good balance between the technology/knowledge available at each participating team
    • Complementarity of qualifications and relevant experience of the coordinator and the individual participants/participating teams
  2. Potential impact and expected outcomes of the project (scoring from 0 to 10)

    • Quality and effectiveness of the management structure and distribution of tasks
    • Added value of transnational cooperation
    • Appropriate allocation and justification of the resources to be committed (budget, staff, equipment)

The total score of the proposal is the weighted average of the individual scores given to each criterion, rated from 0 to 10. The table below summarises the scores and weight coefficients per criterion:

Once the peer review process is finalized, the JCS will send the full proposals and pooled reviews to the Scientific Council (SC) members. The two SCs, one for bioeconomy and one for infectious diseases will meet to discuss each proposal and, after consideration of the evaluation criteria, external reviews and their own discussions, the SC will make a classification of the proposals and rank proposals recommended for funding.

Funding decision

Based on the ranking list established by the SC and on available funding, the Programme Steering Committee (PSC) will take a final decision (subject to budgetary considerations). The Joint Call Secretariat will communicate to all project coordinators the final decisions about their proposal together with the main comments from the SC about the proposal. In case of a positive funding decision the national funding agencies will then get in touch with the individual project partners to initiate the process of drafting the contract.
