About Indonesia

Since 2003, we have spent over EUR 3 million in cooperation with Indonesia. After a few years without project opportunities, Indonesia returned to our list of partner countries in 2016 because of its enormous potential for university cooperation.

The country programme 2017-2021 for Indonesia will be a kind of exploratory phase aiming at motivating researchers to submit project proposals.
