Universitas Islam Indonesia has participated in several strategic initiatives and global projects with some partner institutions in Europe through Erasmus+ CBHE (Capacity Building for Higher Education) program in the last few years. To this day, UII has participated in three projects funded by the European Union.

Erasmus+ CBHE at UII:
Developing Global Capacity

Capacity development project in higher education under the Erasmus+ CBHE program scope is a transnational cooperation project based on multilateral partnership, particularly between higher education institutions from program-organizing countries and the one from the eligible partner countries.

This project is aimed at supporting eligible partner countries to modernize, internationalize, and facilitate access to higher education; overcome challenges experienced by their institution and higher education system; promote cooperation with the European Union; and enhance person-to-person contact, awareness, and inter-cultural comprehension.

To this day, UII has participated in three Erasmus+ CBHE projects with the primary focus on promoting research quality and performance (REPESEA), supporting the development of entrepreneurship (GITA), and building catalytic capacity of universities to improve resilience against various potential for disaster (BUiLD).

ANGEL – ASEAN Network for Green Entrepreneurship and Leadership (2020-2023)

ANGEL is a project funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. ANGEL’s goals are to address green entrepreneurship and transformational leadership and social innovation challenges, and to build a high calibre network of effective and efficient green entrepreneurial leaders that uphold ethics and good governance and are able to connect with the local/regional/international market ecosystem with a multiplier effect in the ASEAN region.

The consortium consists of 16 institutions from Cambodia, Greece, Indonesia, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Cyprus with the names of institutions are as follows: Research Innovation and Development Lab (ReadLab), Hellenic Open University (HOU), Centre for Social Innovation (CSI), European University Cyprus (EUC), Universiti Tun Hussein Onn (UTHM), Universiti Malaysia Kelantan (UMK), Savanakhet University (SU), Champasak University (CU), Universitas Gadjah Mada(UGM), Universitas Islam Indonesia (UII), University of South East Asia (USEA), Hanoi University of Mining & Geology (HUMG), Can Tho University (CTU), Institute Technology Cambodia (ITC), Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP), and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM).

REPESEA – Assessing and Improving the Research Performance at South East Asian Universities (2016-2019)

Through a cooperative network among partner universities in Asia and Europe, REPESEA project discusses a challenging task to build up research and innovation capacity. Research capacity would be developed at partner higher education institutions in Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand through creation and implementation of Assessment System of Research Quality and Impact and development and introduction of independently transferable research skills training modules.

Diversity of partner higher education institutions involved in REPESEA project (public-owned vs private-owned, research-focused vs education-focused, traditional vs contemporary, capital-city based vs rural-area based, social-science-based vs engineering-based, based in advanced country vs developing country) allows for achievement of research capacity improvement target from different perspectives and essential synergy for the partnership. Transfer of best practices and knowledge on research capacity in both ways is expected to bring added value to the European partners.

Program & Partner Universities: University of Economics in Bratislava; Matej Bel University in Banská Bystrica; Warsaw School of Economics; University of Bath; University of Clermont Auvergne; Universitas Gadjah Mada; Universitas Islam Indonesia; International College, Burapha University; International College of National Institute of Development Administration (ICO NIDA); Universiti Teknologi Malaysia; Universiti Teknologi MARA

GITA – Growing Indonesia: a Triangular Approach (2017-2020)

With more than 260 million citizens, Indonesia is the biggest economy in South East Asia and the fourth most-populated country in the world. Current support for new company establishment is still uncoordinated and thus it is deemed necessary to have a more coordinated approach from educational institutions, government agencies, and industries to build Indonesian entrepreneurship capacity and become less-dependent to foreign workers and outgoing economic migration.

The Erasmus+ GITA project aims to instill entrepreneurial education into the university curriculum and create Growth Hubs across Indonesia. This hub is a physical space equipped with incubation facilities to foster innovation and take advantage of novel ideas applicable to local and regional economy.

Program & Partner Universities: University of Gloucestershire; Dublin Institute of Technology; Fachhochschule des Mittelstandes (FHM) Germany; University of Innsbruck; Universitas Padjajaran; Universitas Islam Indonesia; President University; Universitas Ahmad Dahlan; Universitas Negeri Semarang; Universitas Brawijaya; STIE Malangkuçeçwara

BUiLD – Building Universities in Leading Disaster Resilience (2019-2022)

This project aims to create centers of excellence in disaster resilience in every Indonesian participating university. They will supervise the implementation of a comprehensive disaster resilience framework in their respective institution. The framework integrates resilience capacity building at different levels, taking into account the individual, program, institutional, and national level.

Erasmus+ BUiLD project discusses several aspects of resilience capacity building, including university governance, disaster response and recovery capability, disaster awareness training, curriculum development, exchange of information as well as internal and external knowledge, and fund collection.  One of the program goals is encouraging interests in disaster resilience education and career development to promote future research, innovation, and leadership.
