Week of Indonesia-Netherlands Education and Research

Tuesday 24 November 2020 - Thursday 26 November 2020

On 24-26 November, the first edition of the Week of Indonesia-Netherlands Education and Research (WINNER) will take place. The conference will focus on the Dutch-Indonesian collaboration, with an online programme of three hours each day.

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 organise WINNER to celebrate, strengthen and expand the collaborations in Dutch-Indonesian research and education. We aim to make WINNER a yearly re-occurring event, where 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.


The overarching theme for the first WINNER, “Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals – from knowledge to practice”, remains the same. All disciplines are welcome at WINNER, and we aim for a varied audience with representatives from research, education, practitioners organisations, 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.

A call for session proposals can be found on the WINNER website. Soon, this website will also accommodate the possibility to register for the conference. For more information, you can contact indonesia-nl@nwo.nl.
