SCI 2019 – About the seminar

SCI Home About Speakers Programme Venue Accommodation Facilities

According to The Swedish Trade & Invest Council (2018), Indonesia is today one of the top 10 largest manufacturing nations in the world, defined by output. The manufacturing sector employed more than 25 million workers and accounted for ~20% of Indonesia’s GDP in 2017, totaling roughly USD 203 billion. The sector has seen 6-7% growth annually for several years and is the backbone of the Indonesian economy.
The government of Indonesia has decided ten national priorities of Industry 4.0 implementation to boost the growth of the manufacturing sector further. Ensuring maximum impact by the top priorities, the government involves a wide range of stakeholders. The government collaborates with leading industry companies, industry associations, tech companies, as well as research and educational organisations to increase the feasibility of implementation.
The high quality of human resources and the innovation ecosystem are regarded as the driver priorities of the Industry 4.0 implementation in Indonesia. Promoting university-industry-government (UIG) partnerships are the key feature to support these priorities. However, the three spheres of UIG in Indonesia remain separate sectors with very few examples of productive interaction in which knowledge is jointly developed and collaborated.
Therefore, to gain a better understanding of the critical factors in which collaborations in these sectors can be realised and drive the Industry 4.0 maturity in Indonesia, The Leeds Indonesian Student Association (PPI Leeds) is going to conduct a seminar called Indonesia 4.0: Managing Collaboration and Advancing Development in Indonesia.
