2023 Call for Proposals on ANSO International Collaborative Research
The Alliance of International Science Organizations (ANSO) was established in November 2018 with the coordination of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the support of 36 other national academies, research institutions, universities, and international organizations from around the world. ANSO catalyzes and supports Collaborative Research projects in Science, Technology, Innovation, and Capacity Building (STIC) to address major global sustainable challenges and help advance the UN SDGs under the principles of joint consultation, joint efforts, and joint sharing.
Here is the guideline for the ANSO call for Collaborative Research in 2023. By which, we intend to seek good ideas, suggestions and proposals from our member organizations and partners on the formulation and launch of sound, feasible and high-impact cooperative projects. The ANSO Collaborative Research, at the current stage, gives high emphasis on the S&T cooperation and partnerships between and among ANSO members and partners in the areas of high importance to the green and sustainable development of the world.
2. Priorities Areas
