The 2nd JASTIP-WP2 Annual Workshop

On 3 February 2017, Kyoto University (KU) and National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) organized “The 2nd JASTIP-WP2 Annual Workshop”, held at Pullman Bangkok Grande Sukhumvit Hotel, in Bangkok, Thailand. This workshop took place the second time under the Japan-ASEAN Science, Technology and Innovation Platform (JASTIP). The objective of the workshop is to report and follow up progress of projects under JASTIP Work Package 2 (JASTIP-WP2) as well as JASTIP-Net 2016 on energy and environment. During the workshop, NSTDA by BIOTEC, MTEC, and NANOTEC, with collaborations with researchers from Thai universities as well as KU; presented the progress of projects being carried out on the main research theme of “Biomass to Energy and Value-Added Chemicals” (B2EC). In addition, other researchers from Myanmar and Malaysia who have been being involved in JASTIP-WP2 and JASTIP-Net also presented their research in the workshop. This shows that JASTIP-WP2 has been expanding to more ASEAN countries.

Overall, the projects have very progress and on schedule. We hope that during this first phase, JASTIP could be a platform and good starting point for research collaboration between Japan and ASEAN, and will lead to sustainable development indeed.
