WUR Indonesian Network Scientific Exposure 2018 (WISE2018) was a general meeting to connect and update research among Indonesian students and alumni from Wageningen University and Research. The theme of WISE2018 was Food, Health & Ecological Resilience; celebrating WUR Centennial Day.
WISE2018 combined the plenary meeting (with keynotes, PhD lectures and alumni lectures) with space for separate workshops and focus group discussions. WISE2018 offered a unique opportunity to have many Indonesian and Wageningen key players in one place, so that informal meetings, workshops and formal discussions could be held in one place and under great Indonesian hospitality. Therefore, the expected outcome of WISE was to initiate further collaborations and networking between different parties, that in the future could extend to Indonesia, Netherlands scientific networks and to create a new scientific programme.
Speakers at the event were:
- Prof. dr. Henk Hogeveen (WUR chairman for Indonesia)
- Prof. dr. Enny Sudarmonowati, MSc (Deputy for Natural Science-LIPI)
- Prof. dr. Okky Karna Radjasa MSc (Ministry of Research Technology and Higher Education)
- Prof. dr. ir. H. Gusti Muhammad Hatta, MS (former Minister of Research and Technology, WUR alumnus Indonesia)
