JASTIP-Net 2021 Selection Result

After carefully reviewing 182 proposals by JASTIP researchers and endorsements by JASTIP Steering Committee, we adopt 41 research proposals for JASTIP-Net 2021 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 promote ASEAN-wide networks of researchers on some specific subjects.  Integration into a team of successful proposals also could be offered in some cases.
