MSM – IPB Indonesia cooperation renewed

On Wednesday 6 December 2017, Prof. Wim Naudé, PhD, Dean MSM, and Prof. Dr. Ir. Herry Suhardiyanto, Rector of the Agricultural University Bogor, IPB, in Indonesia, signed an agreement on continuing cooperation in the area of management education and research in agricultural technology, entrepreneurship, and sustainability.

The visit of the IPB rector to MSM marked ten years of inspirational cooperation between the two institutions. MSM has supported IPB in strengthening expertise in education and research on areas like sustainable business, marketing, business dynamics, entrepreneurship, gender, partnerships, and animal logistics. Results have been published in several articles, conference proceedings and policy reports. MSM also advised IPB on how to accelerate its transformation towards an entrepreneurial university.

Prof. Naudé and Prof. Herry agreed on the importance of innovation and technology for boosting the agricultural sector. They consider this to be the leading agenda for their institutional cooperation in the years to come. Ample opportunities arise when combining MSM’s expertise in technology management with IPB’s agro-innovation in Indonesia. IPB received in 2015 the award of being the university with the highest number of commercialized patents, and in 2016 for the most productive IP office.
