Researchers from the International Indonesian Scholars Association (I4) have launched a new “matchmaking” platform to connect scientists based in Indonesia with those working abroad. The goal is to improve the country’s international collaboration in scientific research.
Research Minister Bambang Brodjonegoro hopes this program will be a new milestone on Indonesia’s journey to becoming a developed country with a research-driven economy.
“To achieve this, scientists at home must work hand in hand with our diaspora to optimise the pool of talent and resources,” he said.
I4 announced the program last week during Indonesia’s annual World Scholars Forum (Forum Cendekia Kelas Dunia) – held via a two-day Zoom conference and Youtube live stream.
