White Paper: Science, Technology and Higher Education Towards Indonesia 2045 serves as input to the government in support of the preparation of the National Research Master Plan (RIRN) 2015-2019 and the following decades to 2045. This Draft National Research Master Plan is currently being finalized by the Ministry of Ristekdikti. KSI fully supports the development and publication of this white paper.
Pada akhir bulan Juli 2016, KSI merilis "Call for Stories of Change" atau "Yuk, Mari Menulis Cerita Perubahan", sebuah inisiasi untuk mendorong mitra-mitranya untuk menuliskan cerita tentang bagaimana organisasi mereka, upaya mereka atau dampak yang telah terjadi mengalami perubahan selama tahap pertama program KSI. Pendekatan ini telah berhasil digunakan secara luas pada projek yang lain dan kami harap hal ini dapat memberikan gambaran dan membantu pemahaman yang lebih mendalam bagaimana sektor pengetahuan mengalami perubahan dan kontribusi KSI dalam menciptakan perubahan tersebut.
