The SATU Presidents’ Forum 2023 Joint Research Scheme (JRS) is now calling for Co-Project Investigators (Co-PIs) from member universities, for research projects submitted by Principal Investigators (PIs). If you are looking for opportunities to team up with researchers from South and South East Asia and Taiwan, the JRS is the right resource for you!

1. What is Joint Research Scheme (JRS)?
The Joint Research Scheme (JRS) was launched by the SATU Presidents’ Forum in 2012 as a matching platform for scholars from all SATU member universities to establish international research collaborations, and has been a very important academic collaboration platform for NCKU researchers. The JRS received more than 1,100 research proposals in the past two years, of which 826 were successfully matched, reflecting a matching rate of over 70%.
The JRS matching started with the call for PI research proposals, and has now proceeded to the stage of calling for Co-project investigator (Co-PI) applications. The PIs will then be invited to select the Co-PI(s) for the proposals and start the collaborations.

2. The Research Proposals within the JRS
This year, we have received 570 projects from researchers from India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan and Vietnam. The project fields include Bioscience & Biotechnology, Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, Engineering, Liberal Arts, Management, Medicine, Planning & Design, Sciences, and Social Science. Further details can be found in the PI project list at 2023 SATU JRS Website.

3. To Submit Your Co-PI Application
If you would like to join the JRS research projects as Co-Project Investigators (Co-PI), all you need to do is:
(1) go to 2023 SATU JRS Website
(2) Identify the projects of your interest in the “PI project list”, and jot down the respective project codes.
