MCAA Academy: call for mentors

MCAA Academy is a new program to support the career development of its members. Mentoring is at the core of the program.

Our advanced mentoring platform provides a continuous, full-spectrum learning experience, allowing mentees to focus on the skills that matter the most, when they matter the most.

We are seeking outstanding professionals to mentor MCAA members using this platform.

Mentors are expected to have achieved an advanced stage of their career development and willing to provide leadership and advice to our members. The program will run for 6 months and will require up to 1 hour face time per month. Mentors and mentees will be matched according to their skills, interests and career goals.

ASEAN-EU Cooperation in Science & Technology

Scientific cooperation with Southeast Asia became a higher priority on the political agenda since 2007 on the occasion of the 16th ASEAN-EU Ministerial Meeting in Nuremberg, Germany. The reasons for this were the mutual interest expressed by officials to strengthen further our co-operation and the reciprocal will to share experience on S&T issues of common concern such as health, food safety and energy supply.

European Commission: Research and Innovation

Horizon 2020, the EU's current framework programme for research and innovation runs from 2014 to 2020 with a budget of nearly EUR 80 billion. Horizon 2020 is fully open to international cooperation. The biggest EU research and innovation programme ever, Horizon 2020 is based on 3 pillars: Excellent Science, Industrial Leadership and Societal Challenges.

Looking ahead: Horizon Europe - the next research and innovation framework programme

The Commission has published its proposal for Horizon Europe, an ambitious €100 billion research and innovation programme that will succeed Horizon 2020. Find out more here.

 

European Research Council: Open to the world

The ERC is a flagship component of Horizon 2020’s Excellent Science. ERC is a top funding body providing funding for excellent researchers of any nationality, to carry out frontier research in Europe, via annual competitions. The ERC's mission is to encourage the highest quality research in Europe through competitive funding and to support investigator-driven frontier research across all fields, on the basis of scientific excellence.

Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA) under Horizon 2020’s Excellent Science provide grants for all stages of researchers' careers and encourage transnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility. The MSCA enable research-focused organisations (universities, research centres, and companies) to host talented foreign researchers and to create strategic partnerships with leading institutions worldwide. The MSCA are open to all domains of research and innovation.

Erasmus +

Erasmus+ has opportunities for a wide range of organisations, including universities, education and training providers, think-tanks, research organisations, and private businesses.

Japan is a partner country in Erasmus+. Japanese institutions can join partnerships and be part of Credit Mobility agreements, individual Japanese students can apply for Joint Master Degrees. Japanese researchers can also indivudally apply for Jean Monnet Actions that foster study of European integration.

               

 

 

ASEAN-EU Research & Innovation Collaboration

POLICY BACKGROUND

Scientific cooperation with South-East Asia has become a high priority on the political agenda since the 16th ASEAN-EU Ministerial Meeting in Nuremberg, Germany in 2007. Mutual interest in further strengthening the co-operation and the reciprocal will to share experience on S&T issues of common concern were the main driving forces. This was also supported by the strong participation of ASEAN participants in the EU Research Framework Programmes.

The Southeast Asia-Europe Joint Funding Scheme for Research and Innovation (JFS) is an instrument for the funding of bi-regional research and innovation projects. The funding for the projects is provided by funding agencies or ministries at national, regional or local level from Southeast Asia and Europe. Each country funds "their own researchers" according to their own rules and in principle there is "no money crossing borders".

On a regular basis Joint Calls for Proposals are being launched in changing thematic areas which are of interest to the participating funders. In 2017 a first joint call 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.

A typical project funded under the JFS would last for 3 years and usually costs such as personnel, (small) equipment, consumables, travel and workshops are eligible. Yet, this can vary from funder to funder since the national rules apply.

The central management of the JFS is operated by the European Commission's Service Facility in Support of the Strategic Development of International Cooperation in Research and Innovation.

The collaborative project 'Climatic Water Stress – Southeast Asia' (CWSSEA) was selected for funding under the 1st JFS Call. Project participant Dr Pantana of Chulalongkorn University in Thailand shares with us the details of the collaboration.

About the Project

The CWSSEA (Climatic Water Stress – Southeast Asia) project will study the functioning of tropical forests, particularly secondary forests in Thailand, and assess how they will respond to climatic water stress and the potential impacts of future climate scenarios in these ecosystems.

This information will then assist in creating model predictions on the long-term scenarios of climate change impacts on forest ecosystem services, and influence future global policies to combat climate change.

The Science

The researchers will measure canopy transpiration, which is frequently used to estimate canopy stomatal conductance; a central variable in modeling the uptake of carbon by forests. Measurements will be made in both mature and secondary forests, which in turn will allow for the investigation of species-specific responses to water stress by assessing tree hydraulics and drought vulnerability of the dominant species in each forest type.

The team will also explore the degree of soil water partitioning among species within each forest to provide a more mechanistic understanding of how individual trees are able to overcome drought stress.

Taken together, this will be one of the first studies to quantify canopy transpiration, tree hydraulics and drought vulnerability as well as the mechanisms dominant tree species in both mature and secondary tropical forests use to overcome drought stress, which will provide the necessary information to more accurately predict how climate change will affect the carbon and water cycle in tropical forests.
