About Indonesia and Jakarta

Enchanting Indonesia

Indonesia is the largest country in Southeast Asia. As a developing country, Indonesia has over 250 million population. As the world’s biggest archipelago with more than 17.508 islands and Indonesia has one of the longest coastlines in the world with a number of beaches and island resorts.

Indonesia consists of at least 300 ethnic groups, spread over a 1.8 million km2 area of 6,000 inhabited islands. This creates a cultural diversity, further compounded by Hindu, Buddhist, Islamic and European colonialist influences.

Indonesia is home to a rich array of lifestyles ranging from the ultra rural in close harmony with nature’s elements to the ultra modern comparable to any big cities in the world.

The Transformation of the Indonesian Economy:

  • Indonesia faces an exciting and challenging transformation of its economy
  • 2015 – Regional economic integration in 2015 (The ASEAN Economic Community)
Indonesia Today 2030
World Economy Ranking 16th 7th
Consuming Class 45 Million 135 Million
Population in Cities/GDP 53% / 74% 71% / 86%
Skilled Workers 55 Million 113 Million
Market Opportunities $ 0.5 Trillion $ 1.8 Trillion
Vibrant Jakarta – Indonesia National and Business Capital Welcome to our exciting mega-city! While preserving many cultural interests unique to our city and Indonesia, Jakarta is a sprawling cosmopolitan city that offers more culture, entertainment, shopping, and sightseeing than any other places in Indonesia. Spreads over an area of more than 650 sq.km (410 sq miles). The economy depends heavily on financial service, trading, and manufacturing. In 2009, 13% of the population had an income per capita in excess of US$ 10,000 (Rp 108,000,000). Officially, Jakarta is not a city, but rather a province with special status as the capital of Indonesia. It is administered much like any other Indonesian province.

Bachelor in Bioinformatics In an age where big data analysis is integral to successful existing businesses and new entrepreneurial initiatives, the Indonesian International Institute launched the first bachelor degree (S1) Bioinformatics program in the ASEAN in 2014. BioInformatics is a field that manages the large amounts of data generated in biomedicine, biotechnology, food science and food technology and many others. Modern BioInformatics does not only look at genes but has expanded its field to computational biology, proteomics, metabolomics, and most recently microbiomics. BioInformatics at i3L has an integrated classroom to application approach in which the students will apply the knowledge to real life projects either hosted at i3L or at partner institutes. Examples of this are: 1. Phylogenetic analysis of the rich biodiversity of Indonesia both on land (i3L) as well as marine biodiversity (collaboration with the University of Unpatti, Ambon). 2. Novel drug discovery from the rich biodiversity of Indonesia using 3D modeling systems to analyse and predict modification necessary for optimal functionality and reduced side-effects of potential candidates (both i3L as well as in collaboration with LIPI). 3. Genetic screening. In this project we work together with GIS (Genome Institute Singapore) to map out genetic markers of disease. This project is linked to a genetic counseling program introduced by a group of scientist of GIS. However, i3L does not stop here. At i3L our students will be trained to become big data analyst. A mindset that can be applied outside of the biological field. Examples of these elective... [-]
