Deadline: 3 September 2019
The call for proposals for the Cooperation Indonesia-The Netherlands programme has been launched. This Call aims to contribute to resilient societies with regards to renewable energy, and invites academic researchers to collaborate with public and private partners in formulating research questions and addressing the challenging key issues.
This collaborative research is intended to work towards scientific knowledge and innovative solutions, to strengthen the resilience of societies. At the same time, RISTEKDIKTI and NWO aim to stimulate strong, sustainable research collaboration between their two countries.
This call for proposals aims to contribute to resilient societies with regard to renewable energy systems by inviting public and private partners to collaborate with academic researchers in formulating research questions and addressing key challenges with regards to transitioning to sustainable, low-carbon energy systems. These can be both related to the sustainability, flexibility, reliability and cost of renewable energy sources that are already being used, such as wind or solar energy, or sources of renewable energy that have so far not been widely used, such as geothermal energy. Projects should take a trans- and interdisciplinary perspective, incorporating expertise from practitioners as well as from the social, natural, and applied and engineering sciences.
The objectives of this call for proposals are:
- to further develop the scientific and societal agenda on renewable energy;
- to create the appropriate inter- and transdisciplinary research partnerships from both countries;
- to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular to SDGs 5, 7, 9, 10, 12, and 13.
Areas of Collaboration
- Clean, low-carbon biofuels
- Clean, low-carbon energy technology
- Energy storage and conversion
- Other ideas also worth exploring are e.g. buildings as power plants, vehicles as energy buffers and energy system optimization. For the most efficient use of renewable energy coming from various sources like solar, wind, and biomass, smart energy management systems have to be developed.
Consortia can apply for up to 700,000 euros at NWO. RISTEKDIKTI will make funds available for multiple work packages for every consortium, with a maximum of 400,000,000 Ruppiah per year per workpackage.
- Applications can be submitted by consortia consisting of the following:
- A Dutch Principal Investigator, who will submit the application to NWO;
- An Indonesian Principal Investigator from an Indonesian university able to receive funding from RISTEKDIKTI;
- A societal partner, such as a local or municipal government or NGO, or a partner from industry.
- Applicant’s consortium may include additional applicants, as well as multiple Indonesian work package managers. However, it must include the above applicants in order to be eligible.
