Roadmap to set out path towards increased collaboration

A higher education roadmap is being developed to pave the way for greater collaboration between Malaysia and Indonesia, writes Christina Chin for The Star.

A memorandum of understanding on joint research was also being planned, said Indonesia’s Research, Technology and Higher Education Minister Mohamad Nasir. “We need a roadmap and a big memorandum of understanding on what we want to do, and a schedule for it,” he told a press conference after meeting with Malaysian Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh.

Nasir said the fields being explored were food and agriculture, health and medicine, information and communications technology, as well as transportation. “Nanotechnology, defence and security, renewable energy and maritime are possible sectors for collaboration, too,” he said.
