  • “Sexy” health issues in Indonesia-post MDGs:

    • Climate change, population, social and economic changes have impact on human health

    • The struggle to contain rising rates of non-communicable diseases

  • Challenges for universities on research

    • Bureaucratic entity, more focused on teaching than research, research culture is not yet cultivated

    • Uncoordinated research activities within university and inter-university

  • GadjahMada University (UGM) as one of leading institutions in Indonesia has sufficient infrastructure and capacity to accommodate the Research Center.

  • For the purpose of social accountability, UGM will assist other universities to uplift their research capacity
