NBRI Delegate Involved in the US-ASEAN Symposium on Science, Technology, and Innovation

Jakarta, 06 September 2023 – The Park Hyatt Hotel Jakarta became the epicenter of innovation and collaboration as the United States and ASEAN hosted the Symposium on Accelerating Science, Technology, and Circular Innovation in Southeast Asia. Held from September 5 to 7, 2023, this symposium exemplifies the enduring partnership between the United States and ASEAN, emphasizing their commitment to promoting cooperation in science and technology while fostering sustainable economic growth.

As a steadfast ally of ASEAN, the United States has undertaken a pivotal role in supporting initiatives that drive collaboration in science, technology, and innovation (STI). In this spirit, the US-ASEAN Smart Cities Partnership (USASCP), in collaboration with Arizona State University and Rochester Institute of Technology, orchestrated this symposium to create a platform for dynamic discussions and knowledge exchange.

The symposium is strategically structured into three interconnected tracks: smart sustainable cities, cooperation in science, technology, and innovation, and circular economy and entrepreneurship. Each track converges to form a cohesive narrative that explores the multifaceted aspect of STI and circular innovation. Importantly, this event draws together diverse stakeholders from both the public and private sectors, encompassing various disciplines and urban sectors.

Among the prominent participants in this collaborative endeavor is the National Battery Research Institute (NBRI), a leading think-tank renowned for its contribution to the field of energy and technology. Wahyu, a researcher at NBRI as well as US-ASEAN Science, Technology, Innovation Cooperation (STIC) Fellow, represents the institute’s commitment to advancing STI in ASEAN. His involvement in the symposium underscores NBRI’s dedication to driving innovation and sustainable development through the lens of battery and energy technologies.

The symposium resonates with the overarching importance of STI development in ASEAN. It underscores the significance of collaboration as a catalyst for progress in science, technology, and innovation. Furthermore, it reflects upon the enduring partnership between the United States and ASEAN, showcasing their commitment to mutual growth and prosperity.

This event also stands as an interlinked forum to the ASEAN Summit 2023 in Jakarta, where leaders from ASEAN member states gather to discuss critical regional issues. The symposium’s focus on STI aligns seamlessly with the broader agenda of fostering innovation and sustainable development throughout the ASEAN region.

In conclusion, the US-ASEAN Symposium on Accelerating Science, Technology, and Circular Innovation in Southeast Asia is more than just a forum. It is a testament to the power of collaboration in shaping the future of ASEAN’s innovation landscape. It signifies a crucial step towards fostering an environment that nurtures innovation, sustainability, and prosperity for all (MWSM).
