ASEAN Research Platform is an innovative transdisciplinary initiative, launched by CSEAS in 2017. It has aimed to promote dialogues between academic and non-academic stakeholders, and encourage transformative research on the ASEAN region. By bringing together scholars, scientists, and representatives from local government, the business community and civil society in ASEAN and Japan, it has help forge new relationships, share insights, and circulate expertise to address specific issues and needs. Partnerships with local researchers, practitioners and stakeholders have been critical for the Platform to ensure the relevance and sustainability of knowledge produced. In this final annual meeting of our 5-year endeavor, we review our activities and progress, as well as discuss the future direction of transdisciplinary research in Southeast Asia.
