JASTIP-Net 2019 Selection Result

After carefully reviewing 94 proposals by JASTIP core researchers and endorsements by JASTIP steering committee members, we adopt the 26 research proposals for JASTIP-Net 2019 as below (Country(s) refer to the nationality(s) of the applicant and other members). JASTIP core researchers will shortly consult with each successful applicant about the implementation including budget allocation.

Among proposals that are unfortunately not adopted, we will pick up and contact you in order to support ASEAN-wide networks of researchers on some specific subjects such as agricultural waste biomass conversion or photocatalysis technology.  Integration into a team of successful proposals also could be offered in some cases.
