One of the aims of the Knowledge Sector Initiative (KSI) is to encourage the development of Indonesia’s knowledge sector ecosystem through multi-sector partnerships, which connect three key stakeholders–the government, policy research institutes (PRIs) and the private sector (companies and philanthropy)–to collaborate in promoting policy research.
Against this backdrop, KSI, working together with CCPHI, commissioned this research to explore opportunities for stakeholders to collaborate in policy research. One focus of reference for this possible collaboration looks at Australia’s Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) program as a model to be studied for possible joint research scheme. This includes research topic identification and research funding. This research looks at possibilities for the application of the CRC models or schemes and/or models similar to the CRC in the context of, and practice in, Indonesia.
