Indonesian Science Fund Collaborative Projects at Indonesian Research Institutions
The Indonesian Science Fund (Dana Ilmu Pengetahuan Indonesia, DIPI) has recently been established under the auspices of the Indonesian Academy of Sciences (AIPI). This 2016 Research Call aims to provide grants for research in the following two focus areas:
- life, health, and nutrition
- identity, diversity, and culture
Competitive research grants of up to three years and IDR 1.5b/year will be offered for researchers from Indonesia to pursue high-quality scientific research projects. The funder aims to support fundamental, frontier, and excellent research in the above two focus areas of importance to Indonesia’s future. For this 2016 Research Call, Principal Investigators applying for the grants are required to be of Indonesian nationality and based in Indonesia. Domestic and international collaborations between researchers and their institutions are encouraged, as are interdisciplinary projects, but neither is a requirement. The expected results of the research must be eligible for publication in highly reputable scientific journal.
The Principal Investigator should demonstrate the ground-breaking nature, ambition and feasibility of his or her scientific proposal. Proposals of an interdisciplinary nature — which cross the boundaries between different fields of research, pioneering proposals addressing new and emerging fields of research, or proposals introducing unconventional, innovative approaches and scientific inventions — are encouraged. The procedure for evaluating applicants’ qualifications will emphasize the individual’s scientific ability and creativity, the innovativeness of the research approaches, and the potential of the project, if successful, to have a significant impact on the field.
Research grants of up to 3 years and up to IDR 1.5b/year will be awarded. All projects that receive funding must be completed by December 31, 2019.
