The 4th ASEAN IVO Steering Committee meeting was held on March 7 at Chulalongkorn University campus in Bangkok, Thailand. The main topic was selection of projects for the 2017 Call for Proposals. In this year’s call, 28 proposals were submitted. These proposals were evaluated by the 16 Steering Committee members in advance of the meeting, and during this meeting the top 5 scoring proposals were approved for selection. The selected projects all involve a range of different countries, and have great potential for the deployment of research results and expanding international collaboration.
Various other topics were discussed and comments given during the meeting. For example, that ASEAN IVO prioritize collaboration as to benefit the different countries according to their varying needs, and that proposer organizations should contribute to their project budget for sustainable development.
