WINNER celebrates, strengthens and expands the collaborations in Dutch-Indonesian research and education. From 24 to 26 November 2020, researchers, policy makers and societal stakeholders from Indonesia and the Netherlands share results, ideas and make plans for the future. Together they will develop the knowledge needed to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and turn it into practice.

A long history of collaboration

Indonesia and The Netherlands share a long history of collaboration in research and education. Indonesian and Dutch institutions work together in joint programmes on a broad array of topics, ranging from biodiversity to mutual cultural heritage, from living labs on tourism to disaster management and from fundamental research in materials science to sustainable cities. In WINNER we give the floor to those standing at the heart of those collaborations – to share knowledge and experiences, to inspire each other, and to set a common agenda for working towards achieving the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals together.

Achieving the SDGs – from knowledge to practice

WINNER invites you to present results of joint Dutch-Indonesian research, and to discuss how collaboration in research and education between Indonesia and the Netherlands can contribute to achieving the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals. It is a unique opportunity to reflect on the long history in Dutch-Indonesian collaboration, identify mutual priorities, deepen the ties between the two countries and to form new collaborations.


The programme consists of a mixture of speakers, panel discussions, talk shows and parallel sessions by and for researchers, educators and policy makers. All sessions are related to ‘Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals – From Knowledge to Practice’.

  • Welcome addresses with Q&A by H.E. Mr. Bambang Brojonegoro, the Indonesian Minister for Research and Technology and Head of the Coordinating Agency for Research and Innovation, and H.E. Mrs Ingrid van Engelshoven, the Netherlands’ Minister for Education, Culture and Science.
  • Celebrate the collaboration and get inspired by keynote speakers Prof. Daniel Mudiyarso, Nobel prize laureate Prof. Ben Feringa and Indonesian Minister for Education and Culture H.E. Mr. Nadiem Makarim.
  • Parallel sessions by and for researchers, educators and policy makers – Contribute to a shared approach and collaboration on the topics of public health, biodiversity & sustainable development, renewable energy, water management, culture & justice and adaptation for climate change.
