Supporting European Union and South East Asia ICT strategic partnership and policy dialogue: Connecting ICT EU-SEA Research, Development and Innovation Knowledge Networks

The 30-month project will contribute to the creation of strategic synergies in the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) research, development and innovation between the EU and SEA and also between SEA countries.  The activities include the transfer of experiences and cross-fertilisation in order to leverage synergies between the countries involved and lay the foundations for strategic partnerships with sustainable impacts.
