Warwick is developing joint research and teaching activities with Indonesian universities built around key Indonesian research priority areas which overlap with our own expertise. We are proud to support our partnership work with Indonesia by providing seed funding for research collaborations and have developed the required framework agreements with several of the top state universities including Universitas Indonesia (UI) and Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM). Warwick signed Memoranda of Understanding with both UI and UGM in 2016, as well as an undergraduate student exchange agreement with UGM.
The selection of Indonesia as a Newton Fund partner country in 2016 has helped our disciplinary-level collaborations with Indonesian universities to flourish, supporting our academics with external funding and helping to grow their access to local datasets, NGOs and government organisations. Our academics have also been successful in securing other forms of external financial support for their collaborations with Indonesia such as GCRF and Royal Society funding.
