29 August 2017
The Groningen Research Centre for Southeast Asia and ASEAN (SEA ASEAN) has been awarded an Eramus+ grant from the European Union as part of the BRECIL consortium to improve the capacity to conduct social science research in Southeast Asia. Specifically, BRECIL aims to develop human and social capital to facilitate individual learning and institutional mechanisms in social science research in higher education institutions in Malaysia and Laos. The grant will allow SEA ASEAN to play a key role in facilitating capacity building and research governance in the region.
Prof. Ronald Holzhacker and dr. Wendy Tan, with the SEA ASEAN team will lead Work Package 3 focusing on developing and enhancing research governance, mechanisms and institutions in the partner countries. Our partners reflect a mix of European and Asian institutions as represented by Gothenburg University, University of Applied Languages SDI Munich, University of Malaya, University Utara Malaysia, National University of Laos, and Souphanouvong University. BRECIL has been granted EUR 681.035 as one of the selected 149 applications out of a total of 756 submitted. We look forward to making a substantial impact with the universities and people across Southeast Asia.
