On 31 October 2012, I was invited by British Council Jakarta to present a paper at the panel presentation with a title: “Building Research and Innovation: IPB’s Lessons Learned”. This Dialogue aim at providing a framework for the development of effective and sustainable partnerships of two or more Indonesian universities and a UK University with a business link based on the identified research agenda that will be supported by the British Council. The link to business is essential as it brings both sustainability and commercial credibility to the partnerships, however specific criteria are left flexible to allow partners space for an entrepreneurship approach to building partnerships that meet the specific priorities and characteristics of the government, business and HE relationship in Indonesia. Details of the presentation can be found under this link. In addition, on 2 November 2012, I gave also a presentation with a title: “Partnering EU Universities: A practical example of IPB’s academic and research collaboration at the Networking Event of European Higher Education Fair (EHEF), held in Jakarta (@izs)
