Call for Applications ASEAN Science Leadership Programme 2019


Please Apply by 10 November

The ASEAN SLP 2019 is held in conjunction with the ASEAN Conference for Young Scientists 2019 in Hanoi, Vietnam. Thus, at the end of the ASEAN SLP 2019, the ASEAN SLP fellows also have the opportunity to visit different research institutes and universities in Hanoi.

The ASEAN SLP 2019 was developed as a highly interactive workshop that includes training, application, peer support and mentorship. Fellows will attend a 2.5-day, intensive on-site programme in Hanoi, Viet Nam.

019, ASEAN YSN is collaborating with the Youth International Cooperation Development Center (CYDECO), Ministry of Science and Technology of Vietnam, the Young Scientists Network–Academy of Sciences Malaysia (YSN-ASM) and National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) of Thailand, and the Global Young Academy (GYA). The ASEAN SLP identifies early-to mid-career researchers in all disciplines of sciencesnincluding engineering, social sciences, arts and the humanities. Selected participants will be recognised as ASEAN SLP fellows.

The programme aims to create an interdisciplinary network of young academic leaders in the region who are trained with leadership skills and are committed towards developing a collective vision that promotes scientific progress and creates a positive impact at policy and societal-level. The establishment of national young academies (NYAs) or equivalent organisations that represent the voice of young researchers in all the ASEAN countries could potentially facilitate the creation of an effective network that that can play a role in shaping science agenda in ASEAN. The ambition is to establish thought leadership, team development, engagement and collaboration through the sharing of best practices with the ultimate intention of enabling these academies to contribute towards solving the complex issues that face both ASEAN and the global community.


The ASEAN SLP is seeking ambitious and values-driven young researchers with high leadership potential who are committed towards actively contributing to or establishing their National Young Academies as well as promoting greater collaboration within a network of young ASEAN researchers. Selected ASEAN SLP 2019 fellows will be expected to continue interacting with other ASEAN SLP fellows via events and/or online means of communication; and share their skill sets and experience with fellow researchers in their respective countries.

Young researchers in all disciplines of sciences including engineering, natural sciences, medicine, social sciences, arts and the humanities are welcome to apply as ASEAN SLP 2019 fellows. Only a small number of fellows will be selected each year. Thus, successful applicants must be amongst the leading young researchers in their country. Beyond research excellence, candidates should also be able to show an ongoing commitment to service or delivering practical benefit from their work.
