2021 e-ASIA Joint Research Programme

The e-ASIA Joint Research Program (JRP) and the HRC are now seeking applications for funding through the e-ASIA JRP. The HRC has $400,000 over three years available for one research project in the field of infectious diseases or cancer.

The e-ASIA JRP initiates and supports multilateral joint research programmes in the East Asian region. It aims to develop a vibrant and collaborative research community in science and technology; promote innovation in the East Asian region; and contribute to the region’s economic development. New Zealand, via the HRC, is a member of the programme. Other members participating in this opportunity include Australia, Cambodia, Indonesia, Japan, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, and United States of America.

All the documentation that you need to apply for this funding opportunity is available below or on the e-ASIA website.

Eligibility criteria

This call asks for proposals focusing on one of two health research areas: infectious diseases, or cancer. To be eligible, New Zealand researchers must be involved in a collaboration and involve the participation of at least two other participating e-ASIA members.

The proposed research can be an ‘add on’ to an existing collaborative activity or a new research project.

Application process

You should read the application guidelines before preparing an application, including the specific requirements of funding agencies in partner countries.

Register your intention to submit an application to the e-ASIA JRP. Registration must be completed online via HRC Gateway. Following registration, you'll need to submit a full application online via HRC Gateway using the application form prepared by the e-ASIA Secretariat. NZ applicants are also required to complete the HRC budget form. The application must also be emailed to the e-ASIA Secretariat by the overall lead investigator.

Please note that full applications will be assessed independently by the HRC and by the agencies in the international collaborators' countries. Also note that the file names below for the application form and application guidelines differ slightly between New Zealand and Asia.
