ERIA Explores Future Collaboration with the Australia Indonesia Centre
Jakarta, 16 September 2022: ERIA’s Strategy and Partnership (SPP) Director, Dr Giulia Ajmone Marsan, and Programme Officer, Amelia Litania, met with the representatives from the Australia Indonesia Centre (AIC), a bilateral collaborative research initiative established by the Governments of Australia and Indonesia, leading universities, and industry. The AIC was represented by Mr Kevin Evans, Indonesia Director, and Ms Evelynd, Digital Content Producer. During the meeting, both parties provided a brief overview of each institution’s programmes and explore possible areas of collaboration in the future.
Dr Marsan and Mr Evans discussed synergies between AIC’s mission to advance people-to-people links in science, technology, innovation, and culture including issues related to education and skills, young people and development, and digital economy that are aligned with ERIA’s growing focus on the digital economy, entrepreneurship, and inclusive education. Dr Marsan introduced the SPP’s recently launched initiative called Entrepreneurship-Startups-Innovation (ESI) Knowledge Lab, which aims to engage, empower, and connect all innovation builders in the region.
With the support of the Australian Government, both ERIA SPP and AIC are looking forward to initiating more knowledge sharing and collaboration for the next steps.
