2019 e-Asia Joint Research Programme

The e-Asia Joint Research Programme (JRP) and the HRC are seeking applications for funding through the e-Asia JRP. The call is open and the relevant documentation is available at the e-Asia website (www.the-easia.org/jrp). The HRC has $450,000 over three years available for one research project in the research field of infectious diseases, antimicrobial resistance, 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 of the e-Asia JRP participating in this opportunity include: Australia, Cambodia, Indonesia, Japan, Lao PDR, Philippines, Russia, Thailand and United States of America.

Eligibility criteria

This call asks for proposals focusing on one of three health research areas: infectious diseases, antimicrobial resistance or cancer research. 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.

It is acceptable for the proposed research to 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. Firstly, you'll need to register your intention to submit an application to the e-Asia JRP. Registration must be completed online via HRC Gateway. Following registration, you'll then need to submit a full application online via HRC Gateway using the application form prepared by the e-Asia secretariat, and send a hardcopy to the HRC.

Please note that full applications will be assessed independently by the HRC and by the agencies in the international collaborators' countries.
