Dear Dato’/Prof./Assoc. Prof./Dr.,
 
Each year, ASEAN IVO hosts a call for new project proposals in the field of ICT. From core research to real world applications, ASEAN IVO focuses on a broad range of topics in the field of ICT. Particularly with regards to providing solutions for specific regional needs or environmental or social problems, great emphasis is placed on not just fundamental research but practical solutions. Projects ideally have a strong outlook to conduct a demonstration by the final year of the project. Proposals from all technical fields are welcome and they are evaluated on the potential benefit of the output. Call themes are geared toward addressing issues shared by countries in the ASEAN region and they are discussed and decided by a Steering Committee.
