International collaboration

An Organic Start but not from Scratch

In 2012, several national and bilateral initiatives, programs and activities on logistics in and between Indonesia and The Netherlands were existing or under development. We believed it would be beneficial to all parties involved to create some consistency and collaboration between these initiatives. This led to embracing the new Nuffic Living Lab concept to develop the Living Lab Logistics Indonesia – NL initiative as a pilot. As Founding Public Partners we fully support the need for further collaboration to address national and bilateral challenges to innovate faster, to increase and further develop the economic and social potential of our countries and to create a future proof workforce. We created this LLLI-NL organically, without a rigid structure, nor a fixed program or secured funding. Learning from each other, sharing experiences, experimenting and creating unforeseen opportunities in an open innovation network environment is not easy, but appears to be very rewarding.
