Bridging Global Knowledge: The Week of Indonesia-Netherlands Education and Research Returns for 2023
Following a backdrop of remarkable achievements spanning the triennium (2020–2022), the Week of Indonesia–Netherlands Education and Research (WINNER) is poised to make a resounding comeback in 2023. Anchored by the resolute theme, “Enhancing Knowledge Connectivity of Research and Education between Indonesia and the Netherlands for Regional Impact,” WINNER 2023 emerges as a pivotal platform, poised to bridge the intellectual collaboration between these two nations. This year, the event is set to transcend its traditional role, forging an inclusive alliance encompassing academia, businesses, non-governmental organisations, and public institutions from both countries.
Formed through a collaborative endeavour involving ALMI (Indonesian Academy of Young Scientists), BRIN (National Research and Innovation Agency or Badan Riset dan Inovasi Nasional), the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands for Indonesia, KNAW (Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences or Koninklijke Nederlandse Akademie van Wetenschappen), Nuffic Southeast Asia, and the NWO (Nederlandse Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek or Dutch Research Council), WINNER 2023 stands as a significant milestone. It amalgamates diverse sectors to deliberate on the critical relationships underpinning bilateral and regional research and educational ties. The event accentuates the growing necessity for interdisciplinary collaboration and the active engagement of stakeholders in addressing intricate challenges across various domains, including the natural and social sciences, technical fields, healthcare, public policy, law, and the humanities.
At the core of this year’s event lie a series of sessions featuring talks and discussions aimed at moulding discourse and catalysing action. These engagements encompass themes of innovation, sustainability, social equity, and technological transformation. Among the confirmed sessions are those dedicated to topics such as smart sustainable technologies and logistics, organisational focus or skills development, urban livelihood transitions, environmental challenges, and global health.
This year’s event, scheduled from 10 to 12 October 2023, will embrace a fusion of online and in-person activities. This amalgamation enriches the overall experience by blending physical and virtual components. Attendees will not only have the opportunity to engage in online sessions but also to exchange ideas in interactive poster sessions. These sessions provide a platform to delve into poster presenters’ past or ongoing projects, spanning both research initiatives and practical applications, all aligned with the conference’s overarching theme.
As a testament to the organisers’ commitment, the event’s organisers plan to acknowledge exceptional projects, bestowing awards upon endeavours that exhibit promise, innovation, and substantive contributions. This recognition is designed to motivate participants to continuously strive for excellence.
Moreover, this event holds great promise for students and graduates, both from the Netherlands and beyond. They can explore a range of international programmes, including research opportunities, internships, and gap-year experiences. Participation in the prestigious Indonesian universities’ Study in Indonesia virtual expo renders this comprehensive showcase of opportunities accessible.
