Indonesian EMA community (the so-called IndoEM) has succeeded promoting Erasmus Mundus in various ways, in close cooperation with the Jakarta Delegation of European Union.
Some means of the promotion are:
- direct presentations in the universities
- attending numerous education fairs
- electronic articles through blogs
- on-air shows (radio)
On early morning of 24 April (3-5 AM) IndoEM appeared in live show of MTV Insomnia as one of the most exciting ways to target young and dynamic audience of potential Erasmus Mundus students from Indonesia. The alumni networking with the media is considered as the key point to be able to promote EM scholarship in a national scale.

Moving forward to the television network, IndoEM not only promoting the scholarship but also the European cultures to the nation. Targeting to young-adult viewers, IndoEM community participated in MTV Insomnia program – a live TV show broadcasted by MTV Indonesia, which is a part of MTV Asia.

They shared their extraordinary and challenging experiences learning and living in several countries in Europe.
The alumni also invited the MTV viewers to attend the upcoming Europe Day celebration (at Atrium Plasa Senayan, 15-16 May 2010) organized by Jakarta Delegation of European Union for more questions around Erasmus Mundus of which the alumni will participate in the public talk show event.
