COMMISSIONED EDUCATION | LUND UNIVERSITY

This tailor-made programme for Indonesia-based actors aims to build capacity to develop and implement National Innovation Systems for participants with a mandate to initiate organisational change. This programme is given by Lund University in collaboration with key actors from the Swedish National and Regional Innovation System.

PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES

Short term, the programme aims to increase participants’ knowledge and understanding of National Innovation Systems as well as international and national networks.

The knowledge, in turn, contributes to the mid-term objectives, to initiate projects that contribute to the development of the Indonesian Innovation Systems and give participants the possibility to establish new collaborations with Swedish partners from both the private and public sectors. During the programme, the participants develop projects that contribute to institutional and organisational change processes in order to increase the organisational efficiency and effectiveness of their home organisiations.

Long-term, the progamme aims to increase the capacity on a national level in Indonesia to realise and implement Innovation Systems.

TARGET GROUP

  • Other strategically important organisations, institutions and individuals who have the position and ability to apply the knowledge gained from the programme to create organisational change.
