SDG3 and blended education
HEALTH-I (2017-2021) was a project funded by EU Erasmus+ Capacity Building in Higher Education and worked towards advancing and strengthening clinical epidemiology and big data research capacity across Indonesia through online and face-to-face education.
HEALTH-I strengthened the infrastructure of blended education development in Indonesia, through support of online learning infrastructure development, teach-the-teacher training in online education, development of various new online modules, and equipped a new generation of selected early- to middle-career Indonesian clinical researchers with the knowledge and skills to conduct research to inform health care decision-making in Indonesia. The consortium consisted of four Indonesian universities: Universitas Indonesia, Padjadjaran University, Universitas Gadjah Mada, and University of Hasanuddin and four European partners; University College London, Autonomous University of Barcelona, Elevate Health (Netherlands) and University Medical Center Utrecht in the Netherlands.
With the project having come to an end, we explore ways in which we can move forward and ensure that capacity building in health research in Indonesia is sustainable and involves equitable collaboration. This session may be of particular interest to researchers, policymakers, funding agencies, and those working in higher (online) education.
