The First Falling Walls Lab in Indonesia


Liana Christiani, with her theme of “Fuel Cell Cost”, and Dian Prayogi Susanto, who presented her idea on “Precision Agriculture”, will compete with representatives from 49 other countries in Berlin for the final event of Falling Walls Lab science slam on November 8, 2016.



Both Ms. Christiani and Ms. Susanto came out on top following an exhaustive selection process that pitted 122 scholars from various backgrounds from all across the Indonesian archipelago. They include young professionals, Bachelor’s and Master’s students, PhD candidates, postdoctoral researchers and even entrepreneurs. As a side note, Indonesia was the country with the second highest participants compared to other participating countries.


The selection process, which lasted from July to September 2016, ended with a short list of 30 potential finalists. They were all then summoned for a one-day, head-to-head competition at the University of Indonesia in Jakarta. Each contestant had a maximum of 3 minutes and 3 slides to present their ideas and innovations.


After being declared winners for this leg of competition, both Ms. Christiani and Ms. Susanto will be flown to Berlin to compete with the other finalists from 49 other countries. They will also get a chance to take part in the Falling Walls Conference, which is set to be a prestigious gathering of top minds from around the world, and a visit to the German Research Foundation.


Falling Walls Lab Jakarta is an international-level, multi-discipline science competition held by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD or Deutscher Akademischer Austauschedienst). This event, the first-ever held globally, is supported by the German Federal Ministry for Foreign Affairs and is conducted in Indonesia with the support of the University of Indonesia.


“We are looking for young Indonesian scientists who have groundbreaking and innovative ideas that could solve the various problems the world is facing today,” said Irene Jansen, Director of the DAAD Regional Office Jakarta.

2nd SHARE National Workshop on the Impact of Qualifications Frameworks and Learning Outcomes on Higher Education in ASEAN, in Siem Reap, Cambodia, 19-20 July 2016.


In cooperation with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport of the Kingdom of Cambodia SHARE conducted the second in a series of ten national workshops on the “Impact of Qualifications Frameworks and Learning Outcomes on Higher Education”, in Siem Reap, Cambodia. More than 70 academics, university managers and high-level education officials followed the invitation and discussed how to further implement the Cambodian Qualifications Framework and how to align the national system with the ASEAN Qualifications Reference Framework.


The frameworks, which are being implemented at the national and regional level across ASEAN, aim at making learning pathways more transparent through the use of learning outcomes at all levels of education. The workshop in Cambodia focused on the impact of a Learning Outcomes-based approach, in particular on higher education providers.


and implementing learning outcomes will be an ongoing process that also aims at aligning education provision with society’s needs. With its inputs the workshop provided concrete advice for the revision of curricula; discussions e.g. with stakeholders stressed the need for their continued involvement in the process of designing frameworks and writing learning outcomes,; linking up with the industry sector will help to enhance employability of students.


The discussions throughout the two days have shown that such a reform is a shared responsibility; policies would have to incentivise quality outcomes; universities would need to spend their own resources on revising curricula. Throughout the two days the participants discussed how to tackle challenges and how to coordinate efforts in the best possible way.


A concise summary report of the workshop’s discussions will be written and published in due course.

The Inaugural SHARE Policy Dialogue in Jakarta


The inaugural Policy Dialogue was held in 24-25 August 2015 hosted by the ASEAN Secretariat in Jakarta. Under the theme “Enhancing Connectivity and Comparability in ASEAN Higher Education”, it has brought more than 130 participants from both ASEAN and Europe, including senior national ASEAN policymakers in higher education, leading representatives of regional organizations, relevant donor agencies, and academics and students from universities across the region. Over the two days, the event featured keynote plenaries with distinguished speakers from government and regional bodies, interactive multi-stakeholder panel discussions featuring higher education experts from across Asia and Europe, a networking dinner, breakout tracks debating Quality Assurance, Qualification Frameworks and the fostering of student mobility, concluding with a plenary on collective perspectives around challenges and future tasks. Universities and student representatives played a key role on the discussion of ASEAN perspective and expectations. Donors and International organizations also have the opportunity to contribute considerably on mapping existing regional initiatives and projects on harmonising ASEAN higher education. The outcomes of this Policy Dialogue will help the SHARE Consortium to position this project in the best way within the existing Higher Education landscape in  Southeast Asia and bring the unique expertise Europe has gained through the Bologna process in the past 15 years for the benefit of ASEAN.
