ASEA-UNINET research projects

ASEAN-European Academic University Network (ASEA-UNINET) was founded in 1994 and consists of 80 universities in 20 countries. The higher education institutions network’s aim is to support research and teaching activities between the member universities in Europe and South-East Asia (in Indonesia, Iran, Malaysia, Myanmar, Pakistan, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam).

ASEA-Uninet Austria receives funds from the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research and Economy (BMBWF). Approximately 100 bilateral and multilateral cooperation projects between Austrian and Southeast Asian member universities are funded each year.

Target group: The main focus is on research projects in which scientists as of the post-doc level can take part. Training/teaching courses, workshops and summer schools are also supported.

Funding: Project funding is available for travel costs and/or accommodation costs according to the ASEA-UNINET terms. A financial contribution of the Asian partner university in the relevant project is desired.

Application: Applications are collected once a year (in the autumn for the following calendar year) by the Austrian ASEA-UNINET member universities (special application form).

Eligible for application are university professors with a teaching qualification as well as post-doctoral researchers with approval of the head of department.

Selection: The executive board of ASEA-UNINET selects the projects that will be funded and the ASEA-UNINET Board confirms the selection results at the beginning of the year.
