STEM is a 1.5 year long academic capacity building project between the University of Palangka Raya in Central Kalimantan Indonesia and the University of Helsinki Finland funded by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland. The main goals of the project are sharing knowledge in communications, internationalization, academic pedagogies, research methodology, global environmental policies, restoration and rehabilitation of degraded peat swamp ecosystems and carbon cycle. STEM complements the decade-long collaboration between CIMTROP and Finnish researchers concentrating on GHG-dynamics and restoration of tropical peatlands in Central Kalimantan.
