Yogyakarta-based Gadjah Mada University (UGM), Norway’s Adger University and Oslo University have agreed to conduct joint research on democracy over the next five years.

UGM rector Pratikno, Adger rector Torunn Lauvdal and Oslo University representative Fanny Duckert signed a memorandum of understanding on the joint research in Yogyakarta on Wednesday.

Pratikno said that the research would focus on power and cooperation in democratic countries. “[The research] is also expected to improve the academic quality of the three universities,” he said.

Pratikno added that the three universities would also introduce student and lecturer exchange programs.

“We encourage both Norway and Indonesian students to learn from each other’s cultures,” Pratikno said.

Norwegian Crown Prince Hakoon Magnus, Norwegian Foreign Deputy Minister Gry Larsen and Norwegian Ambassador to Indonesia Stig Traavik also attended the signing of the agreement.

Traavik previously said that Norway would provide US$5.4 million for the joint research.
