One of the missions of Indonesian Danone Institute Indonesia is to develop and disseminate scientific knowledge on health and nutrition to the benefit of public health. If we take a deep look at overall scientific endeavor in Indonesia, one significant weakness is scientific writing and publication in international peer-reviewed journals. A supportive scientific environment is utterly needed for the local scientists to prepare a qualified research report according to the standard of a peer-review journal.
Considering the achievements of the objective and purpose of the previous workshop as indicated by its final outcome and impact, the Foundation has conducted the 3rd workshop on August 20th ‐ 21st, 2018 in Bandung, West Java. The Foundation focused on Maternal contributors to intergenerational nutrition, health, and well‐being: revisiting the Tanjungsari Cohort Study for effective policy and action in Indonesia. This study has a good reputation and has inspired the Government of Indonesia in evidence-based policy formulation. Therefore, the Foundation supported this cohort study to be better known and its research findings can be used for the policy or further researches.
