Taking part as the Keynote Speaker, Jamal Jompa mentioned about “Mobility” as the key to scientific success in the European Research Day Programme. The European Research Day (ERD) platform is an annual outreach event for mobile researchers in Southeast Asia that is organised by EURAXESS ASEAN in cooperation with local partners including the EU Delegations and the Southeast Asia Chapter of the Marie Cure Alumni Association. These events are organised across Southeast Asia.

The one-day event is designed to provide motivated and talented researchers with information on researcher mobility opportunities offered by European research institutes, universities and funding organisations, and to offer them practical advice on how to be successful in preparing a proposal.

Alumni of European funding programmes play a key role in this event by sharing the benefits of participating in European funding programmes as well as providing advice to their colleagues on how to find a European partner and how to prepare a successful application. The goal is to increase the number of successful applications to European funding and fellowship programs by researchers based in Indonesia.

The event programme foresees a mixture of information sessions and sharing of best practices to encourage the exchange of ideas and support networking among participants and presenters.

Mr Charles-Michel Geurts, Deputy Head of Delegation of the European Union to Indonesia and Brunei Darussalam, attended the event and delivered a welcoming remarks to the audience. This event was also attended by many representatives of European Institutions who talked about research funding opportunities in respective countries, such as British Council, DAAD, Nuffic Neso, French Embassy, and EURAXESS ASEAN.

This programme is expected to promote researcher mobility and research cooperation between Indonesia and Europe and to raise the profile of the European Research Area (ERA) as a top research destination. Furthermore, this programme aims to build awareness about the researcher mobility opportunities offered by European research institutes, universities and funding organisations, and to increase the uptake of these opportunities by researchers in Indonesia. As a result, this is also to prepare highly-talented researchers for participation in European research programmes through the sharing of best practices
