Research Incentives


This page gives reference to more several incentives programmes that the Ministry of Research and Technology - Indonesia, avails for supporting Indonesian researchers. Depending to the context of the intended activity(ies), an Indonesian researcher or scientific entity may opt to utilise one of these research incentive programme in his/her/their yielding collaboration with foreign counterparts. Your Indonesian researching collaborator should peruse the material below in conjunction with pertinent information, as referred with the hyperlinked texts.

I. National Innovation System Research Incentive (2014)  

Programme Description

The competitive incentive programme of “National Innovation System Research” (Insentif Riset SINas) is one of the policy instruments of the Ministry of Research and Technology that comes with the aim to support R&D practitioners to optimising their resources as well as establishing innovative collaboration with industrial bodies. On the other side, this incentive is also intended for assisting industrial entities to strengthening their science and technology (S&T) capacities.
The benefiter may come by consortium and non-consortium entities. Each consortium organisation should be comprised by triple helix elements of government, higher education /university, and industries bodies that share a functional cross-exchanging R&D agreement for executing an arm-length project, with research subject concurs to the national interest.
For each approved proposal, the maximum amount of disbursed fund for non-consortium research shall be Rp. 500 million (approximately USD 50,000), while the lower limit for consortium fund will be Rp. 500 million.
The targeted recipients of this programme are legally-recognised government agencies or non-government bodies, namely:

In April 2013, the call for registration had been circulated for public review.
Application proposals will be selected by desk evaluation phase, including administrative and substantive appraisal, as well as evaluation on the described costs.  The successful candidates will be announced by September 2013.

Available schemes

II. Incentive for IPR Management

Programme Description

This programme comes with the acknowledgement of the importance of improving ownership intensification and transactional IPR exploitations, particularly on patent rights generated within creative and production sectors. With particular subject target fall to the researching community, this programme ultimately seeks to imbue the growth of national IPR-based industries. The policy design of this programme pursues a mission to broaden public access to government-owned IPR properties, specifically on high-quality research projects. Moreover, this incentive also brings financing mechanisms

Available Schemes

The funding coverage of this programme is to finance individualised IPR registrations as well as to fund the establishment of IPR Centres along with their institutional strengthening.
The implementation of this funding programme is performed based on the following principles:
  1. The implementation of this programme is designed to ensure the IPR enforcement within systematic and integrated approaches;
  2. Planning should be done in coherent, systematic and comprehensive manners, applying a semi top-down approach, where proposals should focus on the proposed product(s); or activity(ies)
  3. The budget allocation should be maintained in such mechanism that will ensure the accessibility of the government’s fund for all STI actors;
  4. The selection process of proposals should involve experts to ensure that the incentives are disbursed only to feasible projects.
