Indonesia’s Gadjah Mada University has forged a strategic partnership with a popular ride-hailing app in Southeast Asia in order to support the growing Industry 4.0 in the country.

According to a recent press release, the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) formalised the agreement that will prepare experts in welcoming the Indonesian Industry 4.0 as well as realise the Tridarma of Higher Education, which includes Education, Research, and Community Service.

Background of the Initiative

  • The Managing Director of the company’s Indonesia office shared that as many as 16% of the young generation in Southeast Asia are interested to work in the technology sector of the future.
  • This information is one of the reasons why the ride-hailing app company launched its social contribution program recently.
  • Through this partnership with the University, they will be able to support one of the goals of their social contribution program.
  • That goal is to be able to build a workforce, which is ready and prepared to welcome the future.
  • The company will be working with leading educational institutions in training 20,000 students through technology talent development initiatives throughout Southeast Asia.

Preparing the Workforce of the Future

  • The University, one of Indonesia’s educational institutions, and the company will be working together to contribute to the achievement of that goal.
  • The University’s Vice Chancellor for Human Resources and Assets shared that the Fourth Industrial Revolution era was something that has not been thought of before.
  • However, it is now becoming something real.
  • Technology has spurred the development of a ride-hailing app. It also allowed people to communicate remotely with social media sites and apps.
  • Additionally, digital transformation is the use of new, fast and frequently changing digital technology to solve problems. An example of this is Hybrid Cloud for Digital Transformation.

Benefits of the Partnership

The ride-hailing app has now made it easier for people to go anywhere they want to. Its presence has helped greatly, particularly in Jogja, which has recently been jammed with traffic.

The University finds that the partnership with the company will be very helpful and will be very beneficial for the students.

One benefit would be to reduce the crowded transportation situation within the University’s campus.

Having so many vehicle users in the campus is proving to cause problems for the University. Because of the increase in volume, the University is finding it difficult to provide adequate parking lots that can accommodate all.

With this cooperation, students may possibly forego bringing their own cars. Instead, they can use the ride-hailing app, which can actually reap an additional benefit of reducing pollution.

Add to that the comfort that the passengers can experience until they reach their destination.

OpenGov Asia earlier reported on Partnership to accelerate Indonesian start-ups. The University of Indonesia has formed a strategic partnership with a ride-hailing giant in order to support teaching, research and community service at the University.

The partnership will bring forth an accelerator program for a number of potential start-ups engaged in the technology, medical and social fields.
