Call for new IRG proposals
To All EASTS Regular Members,(28 Jun 2015)

On behalf of the Board of EASTS, I really appreciate your continuing contribution to EASTS and also very glad to announce that many International Research Groups (IRG) of EASTS are actively conducting cooperative researches.

Today, I'm pleased to call for new proposal of IRG of EASTS. As you know well, the proposal for organizing new IRG is accepted in time with annual EASTS Board Meeting. The Board of EASTS is supposed to review and approve the application of new IRG submitted by the EASTS regular member.

I would like to remind you that IRG is going to activate international cooperative researches among the EASTS regular members and also to expand and strengthen the networking among the members. For that purpose, Members of IRG must include at least two EASTS regular members belonging to different domestic society respectively. That is, the appropriateness of member composition of proposed IRG will be especially reviewed by the Board of EASTS.

If you are interested in starting new IRG, please complete "Application Form of EASTS IRG" and send it to the following e-mail address:irg@easts.info.
Application deadline is 20th, August 2015.

The submitted application will be reviewed at the next EASTS board meeting to be held on 11th September, 2015 in Cebu.
Information about IRG and procedure for establishing IRG is described here and also on the EASTS website:

It is not easy work to assemble the appropriate research members at the proposal preparation stage of a new IRG. To reduce this difficulty in member recruitment, the secretariat of EASTS will offer its support to recruit research members for your proposed IRG.

When you utilize the EASTS support for member recruitment, please contact EASTS secretariat to the following e-mail address:
irg[at]easts.info(please change [at] to @ when you send e-mail).

The secretariat of EASTS will disseminates the information about the member recruitment to EASTS regular members and other interested persons by e-mail and announcement on EASTS website.

I sincerely hope that your proposal for new IRG would be approved by the Board of EASTS and if approved, your IRG will be a great success.
