Collaboration to enhance BRIN's scientific and innovation infrastructure and talent
Thermo Fisher, an American supplier of scientific instrumentation, reagents and consumables, and software services, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the National Research and Innovation Agency of Indonesia (BRIN, Badan Riset dan Inovasi Nasional) to enable and enhance the country's national research and innovation infrastructure and capability. This will create opportunities for direct engagements between the senior organisational levels, strengthening the partnership between the two organisations.
By leveraging its expertise and extensive portfolio, Thermo Fisher will support BRIN's goal of improving research competencies and capacities. Recently, the company has also provided end-to-end portfolio solutions in advanced electron microscopy and single-use bioprocessing technology to BRIN's new facility in Cibinong, Java, Indonesia. Customised workshops and advanced training programmes are being co-developed to address the specific requirements at BRIN.
Collaboratively, Thermo Fisher will help BRIN to expand its desired research capabilities, particularly in material science research, clean energy development, new cell and gene therapy treatments and other areas in life sciences. Thermo Fisher will also work closely with BRIN to establish a joint scientific panel to develop and review research projects. Through this strategic partnership, both organisations will work together to broaden the scientific network of local scientists and collaborate on regional and global opportunities.
