e-ASIA Joint Research Program (the e-ASIA JRP) Research Cooperation in the field of “Bioenergy”
The e-ASIA Joint Research Program (hereinafter referred to as the “e-ASIA JRP”) aims to develop a vibrant and collaborative research community in Science and Technology, to promote innovation in the East Asian region, and to contribute to the region’s economic development.
As part of the program, the following current Member organizations of the e-ASIA JRP hereinafter singularly referred to as a “Party” and plurally as “Parties”, have agreed to establish a new scheme for joint funding of multilateral cooperative activities. After consultations among the Parties, “Bioenergy” has been selected as one of the specific research areas for the call in 2015.
By strengthening multilateral collaboration among researchers in the field of “Biomass Utilization”, the aim of the Joint Call is to pursue state-of-the-art technologies and solutions to common issues across the region, towards realization of an innovative, robust, and sustainable economy and society in East Asia.
The field of Biomass and Plant Science in the e-ASIA JRP therefore supports researches focused on advanced technologies aiming effective utilization of biomass for energy. We will invite research proposals for “Bioenergy” focused on, but not limited to:
- Biomass Production (breeding, cultivation)
- Bio-refinery and Biofuels (gas, liquid and solid),
- On-site Power and Heat Generation, Harmonized LCA methodology for sustainable development, and etc.
