Grant Opportunities Workshop((Eu Horizon 2020 and Opportunities)
16 March 2018 (Mini theatre, Aquarium & Marine Museum, IPMB UMS)
This Proposed Grant Opportunities Workshop had culminated from raised needs by member countries during the previous 5th Climate Change Adaptation Technical Working Group (CCA TWG) Meeting in Manila, Philippines on the 12-13 October 2017. In brief, a special target workshop to be held together with partner funders from Europe was suggested. The main aim was to increase chances of winning proposals which will directly benefit Malaysia and the Regional CTI efforts to support Research & Development (R&D). Continuous and consistent funding is vital to support activities of Goal 4 (CCA) and to achieved the ambitious needs of the Regional Plan of Action (RPOA) and National Plan of Action (NPOA) of each CT6 member of country. At the 13th Senior Officials Meeting-SOM13 in 2017, it is clear the journey is still long and it is timely to attain grants to support activities until the year of 2020.
