A new Research Partnership Program was announced by the Vice Chancellor at the ‘Engaging with Indonesia’ launch held in Jakarta in August 2019. This $300,000 commitment to the Melbourne-Indonesia Research Partnership Program (MIRPP) will further strengthen academic mobility, academic collaboration, and research links between the University and its Indonesian partners.
From 2020 to 2022, the University will provide ten $10,000 awards each year for three years, to encourage collaborative projects between University of Melbourne and Indonesian Academics. These are designed to stimulate greater levels of academic exchange and research collaboration. MIRPP will also enable Indonesian academics to deepen their engagement with the international research community. It is anticipated that the awards will be made to a spread of disciplines and that they will also encourage new cross-disciplinary activity.
The intention is that each award will be used by the Chief Investigators (one at Melbourne and one in Indonesia) to collaborate on development of a project that can be the basis for ongoing joint activity. A typical project would be suitable for funding by an appropriate external agency, attractive to potential graduate researchers, or provide the basis for significant publications. We particularly encourage applications with existing Indonesian partner institutions.
