posted by eucentresg

Dr Yeo Lay Hwee, Director of the EU Centre spoke at the launch of “YAKSHA” – a H2020 research and innovation project aimed at building partnerships between EU and ASEAN in the Cyber-domain. The project which brings together 8 European and 5 ASEAN partners – comprising a mixture of research institutions, public agencies, and private sector (SMEs) actors – will leverage on EU know-how and expertise to develop innovative methods for malware detection and develop software to improve cybersecurity and help build capacity in the cyber-domain.

Since the launch of H2020 (an EU Framework programme for research and innovation) in 2014, the EU has taken steps to strengthen its scientific engagement with ASEAN countries. The main areas of collaborative research are in ICT, Environment, Food, Health and Nanotechnologies. On 29 January, an EU-Singapore IT Research Collaboration Workshop will be held in A*STAR Infuse Theatre to present new opportunities for research cooperation. More details can be found on this link:
