The Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology, the Republic of Indonesia, under its Directorate General of Higher Education, Research and Technology (Ditjen Diktiristek), launched Kedaireka in December 2020; a platform to accelerate innovation in Indonesia through strengthening the collaboration between the Academia and the Industry. To fulfill the gap between each party yet to incentivize the collaboration between both parties, Kedaireka has resource allocation that amounted to IDR 250 billion which is called Matching Fund.
Kedaireka will introduce its program in WINNER, to scale up the collaboration between Indonesia and Dutch, either the academia or the industry. The format of the session will be a talk show where we proudly invite one of the grantees of Kedaireka’s Matching Fund 2020. It will be represented by academia, industry, and the Coordinator of Kedaireka. They will share the potential partnership which could be explored and the main reason why the audiences must submit their innovations. To enrich the perspective of this discussion, we will also invite the Dutch private sector who have been involved in Indonesia’s innovation ecosystem
