Third JASTIP Symposium


Symposium title:  ASEAN-Japan STI Collaboration for SDGs

Establishing mechanisms for international cooperation in STI (Science, Technology and Innovation) is essential to achieve the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). JASTIP has established joint laboratories focusing on the three fields; energy and environment, bioresources and biodiversity, and disaster prevention in order to strengthen the cooperative research network between ASEAN and Japan. JASTIP aims to serve as a platform connecting related research projects to further strengthen the research network and promoting industry-academia collaborations. For that purpose, we have called for participation of wider stakeholders in ASEAN and Japan through JASTIP-Net since 2016.

JASTIP was mentioned in Chairman’s Statement of the 28th and 29th ASEAN Summits held in September 2016 as a positive example of STI activities, since JASTIP’s activities have been highly admired by them.

The purpose of this symposium is to discuss how we should further promote various research collaborations including industry-academia collaboration and transdisciplinary collaboration and how to strengthen this platform as a foundation of STI collaboration between ASEAN and Japan based on the results of our activities from each field. We hope to do so with our colleagues, stakeholders and experts of ASEAN and Japan .

We are looking forward to your participation, which are not limited only to researchers in the fields of energy and environment, bioresources and biodiversity, and disaster prevention, but also to the private sectors, Science and Technology administration, and research support sector related to those three research fields.
