2017 UNSW-Indonesia Research Roadshow


In recent years, UNSW has worked to strengthen its links with Indonesian universities given the close alignment between the research and innovation priorities of Australia and Indonesia. In 2016 UNSW held the inaugural UNSW Indonesia Research Roadshow which has resulted in new collaborations for our UNSW participants and applications for joint funding on large projects. As well as developing and strengthening relationships with researchers in Indonesia, many of the participants also discovered shared research interests with each other which may lead to future cross-Faculty collaborative partnerships. Find out more about the 2016 Roadshow here.

The 2017 UNSW-Indonesia Research Roadshow will be held from 25 - 29 September, 2017.

Guidelines and Application Instructions

  • The purpose of the Roadshow is to enable UNSW researchers to travel to Indonesia to make new connections or strengthen existing relationships which will lead to collaborative research partnerships in the future.

  • All UNSW academic staff are welcome to apply to attend the 2017 roadshow. Early Career Researchers (max 7 years post-PhD) are strongly encouraged to apply, as one of the aims of the Roadshow is to provide ECRs with a springboard to establish strong international partnerships at an early stage in their careers.
