Renewable energy is a topic that is of great societal importance to both The Netherlands and Indonesia, and where collaboration between Indonesian and Dutch researchers can create added value. This call in the Cooperation Indonesia-The Netherlands programme, from Dutch side under the Merian Fund,  aims to further stimulate high-quality joint, impact-oriented research between Dutch and Indonesian researchers. Research proposals should be aimed at the following themes:

  • Clean, low-carbon biofuels
  • Clean, low-carbon energy technology
  • Energy storage and conversion
  • Other ideas also worth exploring are e.g. buildings as power plants, vehicles as energy buffers and energy system optimisation

UPDATE: more information is available from the webinar on this call for proposals


The deadline for full proposals is 17 September.
The deadline for a compulsory Letter of Intent is 3 September.
