The project is implemented in the framework of the Bilateral Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Maritime Cooperation between Indonesia and the Netherlands. Within this MoU the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Indonesia is supporting initiatives between the Netherlands and Indonesia in the maritime sector, regarding among others capacity building, of which this project is an example.
The project aims specifically at building the capacities of two polytechnics (Technical Education which is focused on practical and skill oriented training) in Surabaya:
