Further developing strategic RandD cooperation with South-East Asia on ICT (SEACOOP)
Start date: Oct 1, 2007, End date: Mar 31, 2009 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The SEACOOP project addresses the development of SandT cooperation on ICT with Southeast Asia, a region of strategic interest for the European Union. Its two main objectives are to identify, promote, and support strategic cooperation opportunities, and to support bilateral and multilateral dialogues. The project also aims at developing awareness on SandT cooperation on ICT under FP7 in Southeast Asia, and at widely disseminating project perspectives and results in the European and Southeast Asian ICT communities.The SEACOOP activities build upon the achievements reached by the BASIC, ENGAGE, and GAPFILL FP6 SSAs, and will develop synergies with other programmes and initiatives similarly addressing EU-Southeast Asia cooperation on ICT. Project outputs will include:• The identification of, and support to 10 to 15 key opportunities of strategic cooperation, transformed, before the end of the project (18 months), into major cooperation initiatives between the two regions,• The organisation of a cooperation event in Europe and of awareness workshops in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos (or Brunei),• The development of a web-based portal devoted to EU-Southeast Asia cooperation on ICT, part of an extensive set of promotion and dissemination activities.The SEACOOP project is coordinated by Orionis, who has successfully coordinated the GAPFILL SSA. The partnership includes, on the Southeast Asian side, the national Agencies managing ICT research in the 7 most advanced countries, which, added to the fact that ASEAN has brought its support to the project, will ensure the largest participation of the Southeast Asian ICT community in project activities, and will provide a suited environment for the development of EU-Southeast Asia policy dialogues.The SEACOOP project is formally supported, on the European side, by leading organisations, including the main ETPs, which will ensure the highest involvement of, and the highest project impact on, the European ICT communit
