“What’s that for, do you use an integration program for everything?”
So it seems the confusion (which generally manifests as disappointment) of the Indonesian people. However, the questions that arise are quite valid, right? Actually, what was it that happened that a research institute that had been established since 1888 and published 59 international studies discovered this? Well, this is actually one of the estuaries of a problem that is already quite complicated in Indonesia. Come on! Let’s try to put on neutral glasses and discuss together: research funding in Indonesia! Hehe, a little to bring the topic, but believe me, this is really fun.
Not long ago, Indonesia’s virtual space was enlivened by the sad news that 113 workers from one of the archipelago’s well-known research institutions, the Eijkman Institute for Molecular Biology, were dismissed as a result of being merged into the National Research and Innovation Agency. This is part of efforts to increase the effectiveness of absorption of funds for research and development in Indonesia.
Asian Tigers Who Ignore Research and Technology
Why, anyway, why do you need to do this? Why is it happening now? Yes, right! This happens because research efforts in Indonesia are still relatively low and now several policies have been issued by the government to fix this problem, one of which is through the idea of Law no. 11 2019 National System of Science and Technology and within it, BRIN.
Indonesia has low research quality relative to its massive economy and geographic relevance within ASEAN. This quality is measured through several proxy indicators for research, including university reputation, human resources, and an innovation index that assesses the number of patents and inventions attributed to Indonesia. In 2021, only the University of Indonesia will be ranked in the top 801—1000 in the Times Higher Education World Rankings. The number of researchers-per-million-society in Indonesia is 5-35 times smaller than its neighboring countries, namely in 2018 it is at a nominal 215 compared to Thailand which is 1,350 and Korea with 7,500. In the 2016 Global Innovation Index by Cornell University, INSEAD, and WIPO, Indonesia was ranked 88th out of 128 countries and sixth out of 10 countries in Southeast Asia with innovation performance that continued to decline from 32nd in 2013 to 29th in 2016 by CIMSA UPH.
