Cooperation Indonesia-The Netherlands

NWO and the Indonesian Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education (RISTEKDIKTI) aim to finance collaborative research and strengthen scientific collaboration between the Netherlands and Indonesia. Consortia of research institutes and other organisations (both public and private) in the Netherlands and in Indonesia can apply for funding of joint research projects that focus on renewable energy.

Who can apply

Applications can be submitted by consortia consisting of the following:

A Dutch Principal Investigator, who will submit the application to NWO;

An Indonesian Principal Investigator from an Indonesian university able to receive funding from RISTEKDIKTI;

A societal partner, such as a local or municipal government or NGO, or a partner from industry.

Your consortium may include additional applicants, as well as multiple Indonesian work package managers. However, it must include the above applicants in order to be eligible.

For more information on the conditions with regards to who can apply, please see section 3.1 of the Call for Proposals. All consortium partners, as well as relevant stakeholders, are expected to be engaged in all phases of the project execution, from its inception to sharing the (emerging) results.

What to apply for

Consortia can apply for up to 700,000 euros at NWO. RISTEKDIKTI will make funds available for multiple work packages for every consortium, with a  maximum of 400,000,000 Ruppiah per year per workpackage. This depends on the research area of the work package, and is subject to assessment by a RISTEKDIKTI reviewer. The work package should be led by an Indonesian researcher. The work packages need to be integrated within the project, to create one large project.

When to apply

All applications must be preceded by a Letter of Intent. This Letter of Intent must be submitted by 3 September 2019, 14:00 CE(S)T, to NWO and RISTEKDIKTI will not perform an eligibility check on this letter; however, the Letter may be used to find external reviewers, and NWO and RISTEKDIKTI may give feedback on your letter if, for instance, one of the mandatory consortium partners is missing.

The deadline for full application is September 17 2019, 14:00 CE(S)T. Applications must be submitted to  NWO by the Dutch Principal Investigator. Applications submitted late or not preceded by a Letter of Intent, will not be included in the assessment procedure.
