[Scholarship is offered for this program]
In order to strengthen collaboration between Indonesian and German researchers in the area of applied research and commercialization of research DAAD and Fraunhofer jointly award The DAAD – Fraunhofer Technopreneur Award 2017 to a young Indonesian researcher in the field of chemical science and engineering. Down streaming of research has become a focus of Indonesian research policy. Since the 1990s, global innovation processes have changed continuously. Newly developed products and knowledge are successfully creating new markets and revenues. Moreover globalization and transnational research have increased substantially. Researchers reach out to colleagues in other countries to join forces. The leading technology enterprises increasingly tend to follow this strategy. Eventually The DAAD – Fraunhofer Technopreneur Award will be mutually beneficial to both, Indonesia and Germany. The German host institution’s strengths will be complimented by the guest’s special expertise and research connections in Indonesia.
For German scientists and researchers it is important to increase knowledge by exchanging ideas with their Indonesian partners. For Indonesian researchers and their scientific institutions it is important to learn how to develop marketable products. Fraunhofer will provide infrastructure and expertise in the field of technology transfer. Working together will promote joint development of internationally competitive products. Thus The DAAD – Fraunhofer Technopreneur Award – to be awarded for the seventh time this year – will help to increase the entrepreneurial potential of Indonesian researchers.
