The Programme is implemented by a Swiss Consortium consisting of the Swiss Foundation for Technical Cooperation (Swisscontact), the Bern University of Applied Sciences (BFH-CDC) and the Association for Swiss International Technical Connection (SITECO) working in close collaboration with the Centre for Industrial Human Resource Development (BPSDMI) of the Ministry of Industry (MoI) and the Ministry of Education and Culture Republic of Indonesia (MoEC).
