Australia and Indonesia are strengthening their bonds in trade, politics, and academia. As a result, research projects that include researchers from both nations are becoming more prominent.


This unit will help researchers interested in undertaking international research partnerships to develop their intercultural competence, their understanding of cultural values and how these play out in research, in order to more effectively manage intercultural working relationships.

As part of the unit, participants will undertake a Cultural Intelligence (CQ) Self-Assessment – an academically validated tool to measure the ability to work and relate across global cultures, used by individuals and organisations in over 160 countries around the world. They will receive a personalised feedback report which will be debriefed and workshopped as part of the program and will create a personal CQ development plan.

Participants will further engage with experts in Australian-Indonesian relations and researchers who have worked across these countries.

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  1. Evaluate your personal intercultural competencies and values
  2. Review key cultural differences between Australia and Indonesia as they pertain to research collaboration
  3. Plan strategies to develop your “cultural intelligence” in intercultural research teams
  4. Create a basic intercultural development plan
