The agenda of the meeting was to discuss potential collaboration between Queen’s University Belfast with Universitas Indonesia. This collaboration covers the fields of nursing, pharmacy, and also Faculty of Nursing UI encourages collaborative projects such as mental health research and others. Delegates from Queen’s University Belfast said that having collaborations in research and development with Universitas Indonesia is interesting especially to have a very big collaboration in nursing and related fields this is also because the health UI cluster is one of the oldest, and the Faculty of Nursing is the oldest in Indonesia. Universitas Indonesia builds a health cluster program that is quite equal in terms of profession. Doctors, nurses, and pharmacists have an equally important role for patients, and this model is implemented at RSUI.
Not only that, Queen’s University Belfast is also interested in collaborating with the Faculty of Humanities because they have a very large variety of studies. One of the most possible collaborations between Queen’s University Belfast and Universitas Indonesia is student exchange programs.
