Philippine, Japan, and Thailand Researchers Collaborate on Pioneering Research on Functional Materials
Considered to be the first of its kind to happen in Asia is a collaborative multidisciplinary research project among three countries - Japan, Thailand and the Philippines addressing regional and global issues on functional nanocarbon-based catalysts for a unified goal of developing a biomass-centered economy in Asia.
The collaborative project in the field of functional materials is under the framework of the e-ASIA Joint Research Project (e-ASIA JRP) in accelerating science and technology research exchange and collaboration in the East Asian region. It aims to strengthen research and development capabilities towards resolution of shared challenges across the region, including those associated with environmental protection, natural disaster mitigation and infectious diseases prevention. As part of this objective, the e-ASIA JRP intends to support collaborative research implemented among three or more of the member countries in agreed fields of research. The overarching goal of e-ASIA JRP is to contribute to economic and human resource development, as well as the resolution of various challenges in the East Asian region.
