ASEAN-EU STI Days 2016
The ASEAN-EU Science, Technology and Innovation Days are a forum style event, initiated by the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme funded SEA-EU-NET II project. The ASEAN-EU STI Days 2016 will be organised in Hanoi, Vietnam, from 10-12 May, 2016. This year’s edition of the event will focus on presenting academic/industry collaborations in and between ASEAN and the EU in the context of common key societal challenges for both regions.
The number of scientific workshops and expert sessions on various topics – like infectious diseases, water, food, energy nexus, metrology, ASEAN Economic Community and innovation – is expected to amount to 15, the expected number of participants ranges between 300-400, mainly from Southeast Asia and Europe. The STI Days are an ideal occasion for networking and exchange of ideas in thematic areas like Health, Environment, Water, Food Security & Safety or Innovation. A Brokerage Event connected to the previously mentioned topics, field visits to major research and innovation organisations in and around Hanoi as well as a paper and poster competition make the programme even more attractive. The STI days are generally visited by policy makers, company representatives, researchers and research administrators from both regions.
