This WINNER (Week of Indonesia Netherlands Education and Research) event is a follow-up of the Climate Adaptation Summit (CAS), January 2021, and explores forms of cooperation between and within nations to make climate adaptation work for everyone, with a focus on Indonesia and the Netherlands. We will build on the successful international establishment of the Adaptation Action Agenda with high level keynotes. Then, two forms of Indonesia – Netherlands collaboration in urban and rural areas will be highlighted. Finally, we dive into the prerequisites for successful climate adaptation in a session focused on a priority for both the Netherlands and Indonesia: water resilience.

Virtual Expo Study in Indonesia (For students)
Indonesian HEIs will showcase their institutions in the Study in Indonesia Expo. Join the expo to explore higher education in Indonesia and English-taught study programmes or possible research opportunities for international students, focusing on Dutch students. It is also intended for Indonesian HEIs that have (prior) partnerships with Dutch HEIs and an established International (Relations) Office.
Last month we kicked off the pilot study on housing and health, set up by the TU Delft | Global Initiative, Leiden Center for Applied Bioscience (LCAB) and LUMC Global in which 6 groups, consisting of students from all institutes, joined forces to analyse the correlation between spatial conditions of residential neighbourhoods and buildings, and health. All groups developed a comparative analysis of two neighbourhoods in The Hague, with each group looking at different neighbourhoods. Last week, on November 10, they presented their findings and suggestions on the central theme: how do we build a pandemic proof and healthy city?
The Globalization, Accessibility, Innovation, and Care (GAIC) Network has released its 2022 Annual Report. The report showcases how the network has grown into an international, interdisciplinary academic network through the studying of changes in society, access to health care, and global changes in demographics and technology. “GAIC links inquiry of digital innovation, health and humanities, social sciences, and cultural studies. By investigating extraordinary phenomena in different places, a comparative and critical perspective with regards to findings is encouraged“, said LUMC Prof. Dr. Mirjam van Reisen, Coordinator GAIC.
