Winner, Save The Date: 26 – 28 October 2021

The Embassy, the NufficNeso Jakarta Office and many academic partners in both Indonesia and the Netherlands are intensively preparing the next annual Week for INdonesia – Netherlands Education and Research (WINNER). The dates for this three-day event are 26 – 28 October 2021. Due to the Covid situation, this major event will take place online, just like last year. Three hours per day will be dedicated to the Indonesian-Dutch academic collaboration. Indonesia and The Netherlands share a long history of collaboration in research and education.

The Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI), the Indonesian Academy of Young Scientists (ALMI), the Dutch Research Council (NWO), the Dutch organization for internationalization in education (Nuffic), and the Dutch Embassy in Jakarta organize WINNER on an annual basis to celebrate, strengthen and expand the collaborations in Dutch-Indonesian research and education. At the WINNER event, researchers, policy makers and societal stakeholders from Indonesia and the Netherlands are invited to present results from research, discuss how to strengthen the collaboration in research and education, identify mutual priorities, share best practices and make new connections. Last year, the overarching theme was “Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals – from knowledge to practice”. This year’s theme will be “Innovation for the SDGs: Education and Research Collaboration towards the future.” All disciplines are welcome at WINNER, and we aim for a varied audience with representatives from research, education, practitioners organizations, and stakeholders from industry, government and civil society. WINNER will also accommodate space for sessions focusing on the approaches used in education and research, such as interdisciplinary collaboration, public-private partnerships, and living labs. The annual WINNER event is open to all interested parties and individuals. We aim to publish the entire program by the end of September. For more information, you can contact indonesia-nl@nwo.nl. We hope to welcome you at WINNER!
