KSIxChange#34: Knowledge Collaboration Between Litbangjirap and Think Tanks in Social Science and Humanities
Join the “Knowledge Collaboration Between Litbangjirap and Think Tanks in Social Science and Humanities” webinar by KSI (Knowledge Sector Initiatives) on Tuesday, 29 June 2021 at 02.00 PM WIB.
In accordance with the mandate of the National Science and Technology Law, National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN) will carry out the integration of research, development, study, and application (litbangjirap). Research and development institutions as government think tanks have the main task of formulating how knowledge drawn from policy research produces evidence-based policy recommendations.
To develop a research powerhouse and create a research and innovation ecosystem, knowledge collaboration between R&D and research institutions/think tanks outside the government is required, as well as a better research network at home and abroad. This discussion will examine the importance of encouraging more collaboration between government and non-government policy research institutions to promote evidence-based policy formulation and the development of strategic innovations.
Moderated by Dr Iskhak Fatonie, Knowledge Sector Senior Coordinator at Knowledge Sector Initiative (KSI), and there will be a keynote message from Dr Laksana Tri Handoko, Head of the BRIN, this webinar will feature several speakers including:
- Prof Tri Nuke Pudjiastuti, Deputy for Social Sciences and Humanities at Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI)
- Dr Medelina K Hendytio, Deputy Director of the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS)
- Dina Mariana, Deputy of Civil Society Development in Socio-Cultural Sector at Institute for Research and Empowerment (IRE)
This event can also be watched through a live broadcast on the The Conversation Indonesia’s YouTube channel.
