Researcher Day

"Connecting Research and Policy"

28 - 29 August 2019Auditorium of Fiscal Policy Agency Building,
Ministry of Finance, Jakarta

“Researcher Day” is a collaboration of Fiscal Policy Agency, Padjajaran University, the Australia-Indonesia Institute, and the University of Sydney Australia that takes place on 28 – 29 August 2019 in Jakarta, Indonesia.

It allows policymakers, economists, academics, and private sector to exchange ideas and knowledge on the fiscal policy issue and its impacts on the Indonesian development.

The theme is “Connecting Research and Policy” that meant to build a bridge between the researcher and policymaker towards evidence-based policymaking.

The event features several seminars, panel discussions, and research competition.

We invite experts and general audience to join the event, especially in the area of the Fiscal Policy Reform, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and Input-Output Modeling for policy analysis.

For young researchers and graduate students, there is an opportunity to present their papers in The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition.

We provide 180 seconds to each participant to present their research ideas, thesis, or policy paper about the Indonesian State Budget (APBN).

The best three performance for 3MT will have the chance to win a total prize of IDR10 million.
