Week of Indonesia-Netherlands Education and Research (WINNER) 2020
Dito Alif Pratama
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.Because uncertainties regarding a new outbreak of Covid-19 remain, the first Week of Indonesia-Netherlands Education and Research (WINNER) has been postponed to a new date, 24-26 November 2020. This first edition of WINNER will take place via an online medium. Three hours per day will be dedicated to the Indonesian-Dutch collaboration. We aim to organise a physical WINNER in June 2021. A call for session proposals can be found on this websiteSoon, this website will also accommodate the possibility to register for the conference. Aim is to publish the entire program by the end of September.
