The IGN Bioscience started with the DAAD funded IGN-TTRC as a consortium of eight Indonesian universities to improve teaching, training and research collaborations. In 2014 most of the IGN-TTRC members decided to continue the collaboration and founded the IGN Bioscience with now 11 Indonesian partners and a large number of associated German laboratories. There is a multitude of activities (for details see provide link to projects) including attempts to apply for joint grants, workshops, conferences, student training, a manuscript editing service and many more, A major aim of the consortium is to established better scientific co-operations between Indonesian partners and to obtain support from German partners whenever necessary.

The improvement of bioscience in Indonesia also requires improvement of curricula, of  infrastructure, and of collaboration by sharing expertise and technical know-how.

It will not be easy for Indonesia to reach high international standards in science but the members of the consortium are ready to face the challenge and contribute jointly to Indonesia way into high quality research.
